What Is the OMPD?
The OMPD is a junior property taxing district with special taxing authority for the management, control, improvement, maintenance, and acquisition of parks, pathways, boulevards, recreational facilities, programs, and services. The OMPD includes the entire area within the municipal boundaries of the City of Olympia as they currently exist, as well as how they may exist as the result of future annexations.
The OMPD is governed by the Olympia Metropolitan Park District Board consisting of the Olympia City Council serving in an ex-officio capacity. The President is Jim Cooper and Vice President is Lisa Parshley.
Oversight will be provided by a 5-person Olympia Municipal Park District Advisory Committee, comprised entirely of Olympia residents, created to advise the City and the District. This Committee will provide an annual report to the City and the District regarding the City’s compliance with the funding levels identified in an interlocal agreement between the City and the District. More information on the 2018 Compliance Report.
