The Riverfront Board was created in the late 1990s to guide the design and development of the Milwaukie Riverfront Park. The Board, some of whom are founding members, meet the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6 pm at City Hall (10722 SE Main St.) The staff person for the board is JoAnn Herrigel, the Parks and Sustainability Director. The Board's current work program involves guidance of the land use and permit approvals for a Park design including a new boat ramp, an outdoor amphitheater for musical and theatrical performances, a main plaza and fountain, bike and pedestrian paths and two prominent overlooks for viewing the Willamette River, Johnson and Kellogg Creeks and Elk Rock Island.
In 2012, the City Council converted the Riverfront Board to a Task Force and decreased the number of members to five. The Task Force remains committed to the completion of Riverfront Park and welcomes the public to attend their meetings and invites all comments and ideas. Staff can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-786-7508.
Current Task Force members are:
Dave Green (Chair)
Gary Klein (Vice Chair)
Currently, the Board is in need of one additional member.
