Parks and Recreation Advisory Board

About The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board was created by the City Commission to provide advisory services to the Commission on the issues affecting parks and recreation functions within the City. The Board makes recommendations as to the size and location of public parks and facilities to be provided within public research areas. The Board also recommends established parks and recreation systems and programs for citizens of the City. The Board interacts with the users of facilities to assure progress, development, maintenance, and planning for the parks and recreation needs of the community.

There are nine board members appointed by the Commission. Five members are appointed by individual commissioners and serve two-year terms. Two members are appointed at large and serve a two-year term, and two members are appointed as alternates and serve a two-year term. Other related issues and matters may be addressed by the Board at the request of the City Commission.
