Parks and Recreation

The Parks and Recreation Committee routinely reviews projects, programs and services affecting the neighborhood parks and parkland within the district. The Committee also serves as a forum for organizations and community groups that oversee community gardens.

Meets: the third or fourth Monday of every other month or as needed. Please check the board's calendar or contact the district office to confirm the next committee meeting date and time. Note this committee meets jointly with the Environmental Protection/Transportation/Sanitation Committee.
