Purpose

The Parks Committee is commissioned by the Board of Directors to help ensure all common areas now designated as Parks are appropriately designed and maintained so as to provide an attractive and inviting space for residents to use in leisure activities.  Also,the committee will also identify and propose to the board for designation as parks other common areas throughout the community that might sensibly be converted to parks. Working with the Board Treasurer, each year the committee will define a budget amount adequate for its anticipated and unanticipated activities.

 

Responsibilities                                                                                           

Committee members will first review all existing common areas designated as parks , which includes the Dog Park, the Pocket Park near the 44th Avenue East entrance, and Eastwood Park for their design, appeal to the community, and condition.  Upon this examination, the committee will propose and recommend any changes they deem to be appropriate to enhance their use within the community and will develop budget proposals towards those ends.  Additionally, the committee will continue to look at other common areas whose land might be repurposes to satisfy growing/emerging community desires, such as for playgrounds for children, for recreational activities such as shuffleboard, bocci, or pickleball, and will develop proposals to realize these goals.
