Board of Directors Seeks Candidates for Board Vacancy

The Bend Park & Recreation District Board of Directors seeks candidates to fill a vacant board position. The term will conclude June 30, 2021. It is anticipated the board will appoint the new board member at its Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020 meeting.

The board has five members who serve four-year terms. Each member represents the district at-large rather than separate zones. This is a volunteer position and does not receive compensation.

  • Be a registered voter.
  • Serve remaining board term through June 30, 2021.
  • Be able to attend regularly scheduled board meetings held the first and third Tuesday of each month, primarily in the evening, and other periodic meetings.

Application questions will be posted here by Saturday, Nov. 23.

The application deadline is Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019. Finalists will be selected and notified directly about required attendance at a public meeting on Jan. 7, 2020.

To apply, submit a letter of interest and responses to Candidate Questions to: Assistant to the Executive Director, Bend Park & Recreation District, 799 SW Columbia, Bend, OR 97702 or email board@bendparksandrec.org.

Public Comment

The Board values public comment as an important component of effective governance of the District and welcomes it through in-person and electronic methods.

Public Comment:

Work Session: The Board may choose to accept public comment on work session agenda items at the end of their discussion.  Those who wish to address the Board regarding a work session item are asked to complete the public comment card and state their name and address at the beginning of their remarks.  Visitors are asked to limit their remarks to three minutes.

Regular Meeting: The Board welcomes opinions and information from the public about District-related issues at Board meetings. Upon arrival at the meeting, please submit a comment card at the sign-in table. Speakers will have 3 minutes to speak. When invited to the podium, first state your name and if you live within the District. If there are questions to be answered, follow up will occur after the meeting. Due to time constraints, dialogue is not part of the public comment opportunity at meetings.

If you wish to share written materials or letters related to in-person comments must be submitted to board@bendparksandrec.org at least 48 hours before the meeting to allow for review prior to the meeting. Otherwise, written materials will be provided to the Board following the meeting, which may be after Board action.

Email Input: To contact District staff and Board of Director members, email board@bendparksandrec.org. Addresses for each Director are here. Note: input submitted electronically becomes a public record; however, it is not entered into the Board meeting record if it relates to an agenda topic. If you wish to submit public comment for a Board meeting, please join us for in-person public comment.

Executive Session:

The Board may meet in executive session pursuant to state statutes.  Executive sessions are closed to all members of the public except for representatives of the news media.
