Oregon Parks and Recreation Department to accept comments on Veterans and War Memorial Grants changes

June 2, 2015

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department(OPRD) will accept comments on the proposed changes to the state rules governing Veterans and War Memorials Grants.

Those who wish can submit comment prior to 5 p.m. June 30 at: OPRD.publiccomment@oregon.gov Written comments can be sent Attn: Kuri Gill, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, 725 Summer St. NE, Suite C, Salem, OR 97301.

Once the public comment period has closed, OPRD staff will prepare the final rules text and submit it to the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission for consideration and approval of final text prior to permanent adoption.

The proposed revisions will enable the Veteran and War Memorial Grant Program to efficiently implement current legislation and requirements. The revisions would also allow for more siting options for memorials funded by the program.

The grant advisory committee has reviewed the proposed changes and considers the changes an improvement for the program. OPRD does not anticipate the rule changes to have a significant economic or fiscal impact. Information about the proposed rule changes may be found at http://1.usa.gov/1AIDx01 .
