Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission (PARC)
Formerly, the Parks and Open Spaces Advisory Commission (POSAC), now re-named the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission (PARC) was created in 2007 to provide ongoing advice regarding all park and open space related issues including acquisition, dedication, planning, development, operations, construction and maintenance. In June of 2015, the Advisory Commission adopted the new name to accurately depict the combination of the Parks Division and Recreation Division into one Department.
Since its inception, the Advisory Commission has built partnerships with City staff and Councilors and diverse community organizations and constituencies to develop the Parks Master Plan and to advocate for and guide implementation of the thirty-million dollar 2008 Parks and Trails Bond. PARC built on and expanded these partnerships to develop and advocate for the subsequent 2012 Parks and Trails Bond.
PARC Commissioners are selected to represent all four City Districts and a diversity of interests including skate parks, wheel-friendly trail connections, BMX, motocross, organized sports leagues, community gardens, Art in the Parks, water conservation in parks, Tree City and many others.
PARC agendas are published on the City web site the Monday before the meeting.
PARC meets the third Tuesday of every month from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. at GCCC
