VANCOUVER – The city of Vancouver is seeking applicants for vacancies on its volunteer Vancouver Public Facilities District (PFD) Board of Directors. The deadline to apply has been extended to Monday, June 26 (previously June 5).
The PFD owns the land under the Hilton hotel and convention center in downtown Vancouver which it leases to the city’s Downtown Redevelopment Authority (DRA). The PFD receives funding for the operation of the property from the state sales tax credit program which it then transfers to the DRA. The PFD board is also responsible for approving annual budgets and monitoring use of the funds.
The Vancouver City Council appoints the board, which is comprised of two at-large board members and three members appointed based on recommendations from local organizations, including the Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, local economic development organizations and local labor councils. The city is recruiting for three seats held by someone recommended by local organizations; one of those seats is held by an individual that can seek reappointment. All applicants must also participate in a virtual interview with the Vancouver City Council on a date to be determined.
Two of these seats are for mid-term appointments; one expiring in 2025 and one in 2026. The third seat will be for a full, four-year term.
The PFD board typically meets twice a year. Meetings are hybrid, with an in-person option at Vancouver City Hall, 415 W. 6th St. Board members prepare for meetings by reviewing financial information provided to them in advance.
Applications may be submitted online at www.cityofvancouver.us/boards. For a printed application or for further information, contact the boards and commissions coordinator in the City Manager’s Office at P.O. Box 1995, Vancouver, WA 98668-1995, email@example.com or (360) 487-8600.
