Board Letter

At their August, 2017 meeting, the Santa Cruz County Parks and Recreation Commission voted to recommend revisions to their by-laws. Most of the changes were grammatical and insignificant. However, two major changes were made: 1) allowing alternate location of meetings with public notice, and  2) specifying a three minute time limit for oral communications. The intention for allowing alternate meeting locations was for the Parks and Recreation Commission to be more accessible to other areas of the County and also to provide an opportunity to hold a Commission meeting at a County Park. Attached for your Board’s consideration are the revised and clean copies of the Parks and Recreation Commission’s by-laws.


It is therefore recommended that your Board approve the revisions to the Parks and Recreation Commission by-laws.
