Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission


The Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission consists of seven members, appointed by the City Council for terms of four years each. The Ordinance introduced at the December 16, 1996 Council Meeting changed the terms of members to commence June 1 and expire May 31 of even numbered years.

The City Council, upon adopting the concept of an advisory recreation park commission, designated the following general duties and responsibilities of the Commission:

  • Act in an advisory capacity to the City Council in policy matters pertaining to the acquisition and development of parks and the formulation of a recreation program to meet the needs of the citizens;
  • Periodically review and make recommendations on the recreation and parks element of the City General Plan;
  • Actively promote recreation and park activities within the City;
  • Review and make recommendations to the City Council on the City Manager's annual proposed budget for recreation and parks from a pure policy standpoint, pertaining only to programs, levels of service, and capital improvements.

The Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission meets regularly on the fourth Wednesday of each month and may meet in additional special sessions.
