A half day summit was hosted by the Intertwine May 12, 2016. The East Multnomah Parks working group was instrumental in bringing the summit to East Multnomah County and provided support for the event agenda and outreach.

The purpose of East Multnomah Parks working group, of which Springwater is a part, is to research, explore and facilitate adequate, sustainable, and strategic investment in East Multnomah County's parks, trails community centers, school grounds, and natural areas. This shared effort supports improved public health, economic prosperity, and environmental quality. This investment includes recreational and education programming, stewardship and maintenance, and needed capital improvements that equitably serve the entire community of East Multnomah County.

The Intertwine provided a brief recap of the events of the day, the outcome of discussions and next steps. You can read the Intertwine Letter here.
