Recreation-loving Parkites sought for Park City board

Park City is seeking applications from people who want to serve on the Recreation Advisory Board, the City Hall panel that has some influence on issues ranging from small parks in neighborhoods to the Quinn’s Junction sports complex.

There are three terms that are expiring. One is held by Rob Lea and Craig Moyes holds another one. The third term was held by Meeche White before she stepped down as she moved.

Lea is serving his second term and cannot remain on the panel based on term limits. Moyes could seek reappointment. The Park City Council makes the selections for the seven-person board. Terms are for three years. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month, starting at 6 p.m.

The panel is involved in many decisions related to recreation matters inside Park City. Ken Fisher, who manages recreation programs for City Hall and works closely with the board, said some of the upcoming issues include planned improvements to City Park. He expects the Recreation Advisory Board will also delve into work at neighborhood parks, such as Rotary Park. He anticipates members will also be involved in talks about a long-range plan for the Quinn’s Junction sports complex.

Fisher, though, said the next Recreation Advisory Board members will not be tasked with many decisions regarding the Park City Recreation Center, the facility that is under construction at the Racquet Club site. Most of the decisions about the Recreation Center have already been made, he said.

Members of the Recreation Advisory Board are compensated with privileges at the Recreation Center during their terms. They are not paid.

Applications and more information are available on City Hall’s website, Select the ‘More’ link under the News headline on the front page of the website. Then select the ‘Recreation Advisory Board Openings’ link.

Questions include which issues someone considers as being of importance to the Recreation Advisory Board and how people perceive the mission of the panel.

The application deadline is 5 p.m. on May 20.

Contact Fisher for additional information. His number is 615-5411. His e-mail address is
