Parks and Recreation Advisory Board
Charlottesville VA Parks and Grounds

Mission statement: "Created in 1990 to advise City council on matters relating to Parks and Recreation, we are citizens working for excellence in both of these divisions. The Board consists of a Planning Commission member, School Board member, Athletic director, landscape architects and regular users of our parks and recreation programs.  The Board has initiated many studies including the Facilities Evaluation, Athletic Field Study and The City as a Park Master Plan.  In the past, it has appropriated funds to help renovate several parks, add maintenance assistance and enhance our trails. All of the Board members welcome the ideas of our fellow citizens to improve our parks and recreation programs which we consider to be among the best in the state."
