Submit Your Ideas for the OCF Grant

Posted on by

To celebrate its 40 year anniversary, the Oregon Community Fund (OCF) has awarded a $5,000 grant to each of the Oregon cities that had not yet received an OCF grant. The City of Maywood Park is one of those cities!

The city is inviting current residents to submit their ideas for projects to be funded with this grant. The chosen project will need to be funded in full by the $5,000 budget and require minimal ongoing maintenance. Most importantly, the funds must be used to directly benefit and improve the quality of life for Maywood Park citizens!

If you have an idea of how you would like to see the grant used, please plan to attend the Maywood Park City Council meeting on Monday, December 8 at 7PM to present your idea. Please be sure your project includes a budget detailing the cost of your proposed project.

We are excited to announce that registration is now open for the 3rd annual Maywood Park 5K!

This is the only race we know of where participants get to walk or run every single street in an entire city. Join us in exploring the quiet, tree-filled community of Maywood Park on Saturday, November 8th. The course begins at the base of Rocky Butte at NE 92nd & Skidmore St, crosses over I-205 on Prescott, and then winds through each street in the city of Maywood Park.

Walkers and runners of all ages are welcome! Cost is $15 for adults, and is free for high school students with valid ID.

Registration costs for this event are kept low to encourage community participation. Any proceeds from the race will be donated to the American Heart Association.

Cesspool Questionnaire

In an effort to make an informed decision regarding the possible sewering in the City of Maywood Park and or the replacement of failed cesspools we need to gather information in order to understand the number of homes with original cesspools still in use, and the number and age of cesspools that have been replaced. Please help us by filling out the form here.

If you do not have access to a computer or your property information is not online, please email us at contact@cityofmaywoodpark.com
