The mission of the Community Services Commission is to make recommendations to City Council on matters relating to development, acquisition, and renovation of park, beach, and recreational facilities.
The Community Services Commission is comprised of seven members appointed by City Council and six members who represent each of the school districts within the city.
The commission acts in an advisory capacity to the City Council in matters pertaining to harbors and beaches facilities, park acquisition, development and maintenance. It has representatives from the six school districts as well as seven community at-large members. The commission cooperates with other governmental agencies and civic groups in the advancement of sound parks and recreational planning under the direction of the City Council. Commissioners study, report and interpret the needs of the public to the City Council, including conducting public meetings to garner community input on projects and facilities. The commission reviews the annual Capital Improvement Projects budget as presented to the City Council and advises them on the current needs and long-range plans.
Commission Committees are vitally important to the decision making process of the Commission. They may be called upon to study various requests, problems or plans and ultimately make recommendations to Commission.
