Authorize grant agreement to award $10,000 to Oregon Museum of Science and Industry to support an Advisory Committee to co-develop the Center for Tribal Nations and Waterfront Education Park with Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians and Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission
The City of Portland ordains:
Section 1. The Council finds:
- In 2017, Portland City Council accepted the Eastbank Crescent Riverfront Plan (Resolution #37294) and directed staff to seek funds to coordinate with Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) and other property owners and to develop a refined Eastbank Crescent riverfront concept that integrates habitat restoration with public recreation elements.
- OMSI is in the process of co-developing its Master Development Plan (Plan) with the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians and the Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission. The Plan includes a Center for Tribal Nations and a Waterfront Education Park centered in traditional ecological knowledge and science. The Bureau of Environmental Services’ Community Engagement team is partnering to support project elements by refining concepts for educational opportunities about Willamette River ecology, traditional Tribal uses and significance of the river, and supporting Indigenous culture and connection to the Willamette River.
- Though community engagement with agencies, environmental, and recreational interests has been ongoing throughout planning efforts, the partners have now engaged a Center for Tribal Nations Advisory Committee (CTNAC) comprised of a collaboration of local, Tribal and regional government entities, Indigenous groups, nonprofits and businesses. The CTNAC is advising on the vision, programming, design, and development of the Center for Tribal Nations and the Waterfront Education Park.
- This grant supports stipends for participating Advisory Committee members in the project.
- The established cost is $10,000. Funds are available in the Sewer System Operating Fund, FY22/23 Budget, Bureau of Environmental Services, ESDP000023, 521000.
NOW, THEREFORE, the Council directs:
- The Director of the Bureau of Environmental Services is authorized to execute grant agreement in substantially the same form as Exhibit A attached herein, for the purpose described in Section 1, in the total amount of $10,000.
- The Director of the Bureau of Environmental Services is authorized to amend the agreement where substantial need is demonstrated by the grantee to change the timeline or amend the budget line items.
- The Mayor and City Auditor are hereby authorized to pay for the agreement from the Sewer System Operating Fund Budget when demand is presented and approved by the proper authority.
An ordinance when passed by the Council shall be signed by the Auditor. It shall be carefully filed and preserved in the custody of the Auditor (City Charter Chapter 2 Article 1 Section 2-122)
