TARGET 2014 -- GOALS FOR OREGON PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT

 

736-100-0000

Purpose

The mission of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is to provide and protect outstanding natural, scenic, cultural, historic and recreational sites for the enjoyment and education of present and future generations. The Department is guided by the Parks and Recreation Commission, which leads by defining and affirming the Department's core values and direction. The Commission adopted Target 2014 on November 30, 2000, setting the Department's direction for the next fifteen years. These rules set forth the goals that comprise Target 2014.

Goal Three -- Advance the principles of conservation and sustainability in land management, development and business practices

The Commission and the Department hold a public trust to protect Oregon's park system, including the Willamette River Greenway, State Scenic Waterways and ocean shores. The Department practices sustainable natural resource management that balances the need to assure future generations enjoy similar benefits.

Goal Four -- Preserve Oregon's rich cultural heritage and broaden public understanding of Oregon's historic places and events

The cultural history of Oregon -- structures, landmarks, and special places -- extends beyond the boundaries of park properties. The Heritage Conservation Division safeguards this public trust.

Goal One -- Acquire properties that build upon the diversity and strength of our current system

The Oregon state park system is a rich mosaic of Oregon's natural resources, scenic landscapes and history. In 1998, voters sent a clear message of support for the enhancement of that mosaic through the development, conservation and expansion of Oregon's park system for future generations.

Goal Five -- Deliver world-class experiences to park visitors

World-class experiences create vivid memories that enrich the lives of our visitors, and deepen their understanding of Oregon's natural, historical and cultural resources. Bringing those experiences to life requires a fundamentally strong park system, with varied, ample and appealing places to visit, enthusiastic, professional staff, and a special commitment to high-quality interpretive experiences.

Goal Six -- Promote access to Oregon's beaches, trails and waterways

Oregon's park properties belong to the people. The Commission is entrusted with ensuring reasonable access to park lands for all while simultaneously considering resource protection and local land use goals. In particular, access to Oregon's beaches, scenic waterways, trail corridors and other public open spaces demands consistent advocacy, planning and consensus building to ensure enhancement and growth.

Goal Seven -- Provide varied, high-quality camping and other overnight experiences

Camping is a cornerstone of the Oregon state park experience. Demand for camping and other overnight stays in parks is increasing and becoming more varied, and the Department must respond quickly and creatively to that demand.

Goal Eight -- Seek sufficient and stable operational and long-term funding

While Oregon voters accorded the Department a greater measure of financial stability and sufficiency in 1998 through a dedicated share of the state lottery, the Department's revenue sources are diverse. The Department will not become over-reliant on any one funding source, and the Commission acknowledges need for continued fund-raising, leveraged or shared acquisition partnerships and lean, efficient operations.
