Applications are available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7XM6RSN. The deadline to submit applications is Monday, October 23.
Advisory Committee volunteers review plans, provide feedback, and take part in lively discussions about district programs, facilities and parks. We have openings on the Nature & Trails, Parks & Facilities, and Programs & Events committees.
Nature & Trails Advisory Committee: Share your enthusiasm and expertise for natural resource management, environmental education, wildlife, and trail development and use. This committee meets once a month, typically the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm.
Parks & Facilities Advisory Committee: Focus on park design, helping making spaces accessible to everyone, community gardens, dog parks, athletic facilities, and historic properties. This committee meets once a month, typically the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6 pm.
Programs & Events: Advise the district on what programs should be offered and expanded, provide input on district-wide community events, and review programming content in recreation, sports, aquatics, environmental education and more. This committee meets once a month, typically the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm.
Budget Committee: The Budget Committee is responsible for providing public oversight of budget preparations, recommending changes to the proposed budget, and supplying information to the public about district business and operations.
The Budget Committee meets at least three times per year to 1) review the current year budget and operating results; 2) discuss the proposed budget for the upcoming year; and 3) approve the budget to be considered for adoption by the Board of Directors. Other meetings may be scheduled as the committee deems necessary.
People of all backgrounds and experience levels are encouraged to apply. These positions are critical to represent the broad perspectives of district patrons.
