Keep Silver Falls Park out of the hands of private concessionaires
This petition had 93 supporters
The Oregon State Parks Dept. Is about to make a decision on leasing both Silver Falls Ranch buildings to a for-profit out of state concessionaire.
This California company wants to turn them into expensive wedding venues with rental rates of $700 - $900 per night on weekdays and up to $2,000 a night on weekend.
With prices like that the Boy Scouts ,school groups, and family reunions will lose a couple of great spaces with nothing to replace them.
This same company took over the Silver Falls Conference center and then raised rates through the roof.
The decision to lease or not will be made in the next few weeks.
Matt Davey is the supervisor who will make the decision. Please write to him right away or call him or better yet both and urge him not to do this. It goes against everything the state park system is set up for.
