Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission



The Oregon State Parks and Recreation Commission was created by the State Legislature in 1989 to establish policies, adopt rules necessary to execute the duties of the Department, set fees, acquire property, promote the state´s outdoor recreation policy, and appoint the OPRD director. Commissioners serve four-year terms. They are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the State Senate.

All public commission meetings are streamed live to Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkqL6iVPBrfCTO27cNmCTwg/videos. Business meetings and training workshops are open to public attendance, and executive sessions aren't. Executive sessions do not include any actions or deliberations toward decisions.

As a courtesy, most business meetings include time for informal public comments. To register, select the month below and follow the registration link.
