Since the Park District was established, it has been fortunate to enlist the dedication and expertise of numerous volunteers. At the center of this volunteer effort are the park commissioners. Residents of the park district elect a non-partisan, five-member Board of Commissioners to govern the district. The Park Board determines the priorities and defines policies for financing, governance, operation and administration of the park district. Board members are elected to serve unsalaried, overlapping six-year terms.
The board meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:00 PM at Sandridge Fitness Center, 600 Oglesby Avenue. Residents are invited to attend the meetings. Committee meetings are held on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 PM at the same location. Residents are invited to attend the meetings.
To reach a board member by phone, please contact the Business Office at 708-868-2530.
