WHAT'S NEW:

The Greater Clark Parks District was created in February 2005 when voters in the unincorporated urban area outside the City of Vancouver passed Proposition 1. This property tax-based metropolitan parks district provides funding for maintenance, operations and construction of 30 new neighborhood parks, five new community parks, seven miles of new walking trails, and additional sports field capacity to meet the needs of the county's youth sports programs.

The Board of County Commissioners oversees operation of the Greater Clark Parks District program. Clark County Public Works is responsible for planning, designing, constructing and maintaining the associated projects.

The new parks, trails and sports fields will help provide a better quality of life, an increased ability to attract businesses to the area and a healthier community. In addition, the parks district program will put millions of dollars back into the local economy through construction and engineering contracts with local firms, and hiring additional park maintenance personnel.

If voters hadn't approved the Greater Clark Parks District program, all 35 parks would have remained undeveloped, and the Park Impact Fees available to design and construct them would have expired and been returned to developers.
