The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is seeking volunteers for two vacant positions on the Recreation Trails Program (RTP) Advisory Committee. Members are needed to fill the following two user representative vacancies:
* Hiking user representative
* Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) user representative
RTP is a competitive grant program funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration and administered by OPRD. RTP grants fund recreation trail-related projects.
The RTP Advisory Committee is a ten member group that evaluates and ranks requests for grant funding. Ideal candidates would have experience in one or more of the following areas: recreation planning, trail design, project management, grant management, or budget review.
The committee meets once or twice a year at locations throughout the state. The 2017 RTP grant review meeting is scheduled for June 27-29 in Salem.
Those interested in serving must submit an OPRD Grant Advisory Committee Appointment Interest Form by Friday, April 7.
