SELLWOOD COMMUNITY CENTER UPDATE

 

Sadly, Mayor Wheeler's proposed budget released on May 1st does NOT include any funding for Sellwood Community Center after 8/31/19.  However, the Friends of Sellwood Community Center continues to work tirelessly to keep the building and programming up and running for fall.  Next steps: there is one final budget hearing on Thursday May 9 at the World Forestry Center (4033 SW Canyon Road) 6:30-8:30.  The Union that represents Parks employees and community groups are holding a family-friendly rally prior to that event at the World Forestry Center at 5PM.  All are encouraged to attend, perhaps we can change Mayor Wheeler's mind before the budget is adopted later this month.  At the same time, the Friends group is working with Parks to negotiate an agreement to transition the building and programming from Parks to Friends of SCC starting 9/1/19.  For more information, please come to our next Friends meeting on Th 5/2 at 7PM at the Community Center.  We'll continue to keep the community updated as we have more information, and/or feel free to email us at FriendsofSellwoodCC@gmail.com
