Tigard, Oregon, bond measure

2010 parks and natural areas bond measure campaign

The Conservation Campaign sponsored the successful campaign to pass a $17 million  bond to purchase parks and conserve natural areas in a rapidly developing but fiscally conservative Portland-area suburb.

“We’re a small suburban town. The Conservation Campaign gave us the professional management, public opinion research, and strategizing that we couldn’t have done locally. We didn’t have the wherewithal and the funds to pull together a campaign in such a short time. The Conservation Campaign came in and really helped us pull it off.”
