Please join Intertwine Alliance Board President Owen Wozniak and Co-Directors Tara Wilkinson and Katie Gavares for our October partner coffee!
This month's topic will be potential renewal of the Metro parks & nature levy in 2022. The Intertwine Alliance's mission includes supporting voter-approved measures that invest in our regional system of parks, trails and natural areas. Our coalition came together to support Metro's 2019 parks & nature bond, and continues to stay engaged during its implementation. The local option levy, which is set to expire in 2023, is another critical piece of the regional funding that keeps our parks-and-nature system working. The Metro Council will consider whether to seek a renewal of the local option levy in early 2022.
Metro’s local option levy is a source of funds that ensures continued maintenance and restoration of priority habitat, operations of Metro parks, improvement of public access at Metro destinations, and the continuation of community investments through grants, education and volunteer programming.
Please join us on Oct. 26 to:
--learn more about the levy from Metro staff
--hear about the status of the work to develop a potential levy renewal package for Metro Council consideration
--Stay informed on future events
There'll be a chance to ask questions, and to share feedback and information relevant to current work supported by the local option levy.
We hope to see you there!
