CPRD welcomes its newest member to the Board of Director, Bart Rierson. The Board appointed Bart at its January meeting, after Larry Anderson vacated his position.
Bart is neither a face new to CPRD or to Newberg. Bart has been resident of Newberg since 1987. A current city councilor, Bart has served on Newberg City Council since 2006.
Bart has been involved with CPRD for years, serving as a CPRD Budget Committee and volunteer. He served as project manager for the Ford Family Leadership Class Chehalem Paddle Launch project, which has become the CPRD Chehalem Paddle Launch. He says his favorite CPRD projects are the Chehalem Paddle Launch and Chehalem Heritage Trails.
Bart's prior Civic involvement activities include Newberg Planning Commission, Newberg Downtown Revitalization Committee, City of Newberg Budget Committee, Newberg City Club Member, Graduate of Chamber of Commerce and Ford Family Leadership programs.
