The City of Vancouver is seeking applicants to fill two vacancies on its Vancouver Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission (PRAC). Completed applications must be received by the City Manager’s Office by 5 p.m. Friday, June 7.
PRAC is a 10-member volunteer citizen’s group made up of city residents, two school district representatives and a liaison from the Parks Foundation of Clark County. The commission advises Vancouver City Council and City staff on needs, plans and programs necessary to provide an adequate system of parks, open space, playgrounds, facilities and recreation services to the citizens of Vancouver.
PRAC meets from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month, as well as occasional special meetings.
In order to serve on PRAC, applicants must live within the Vancouver city limits. The open positions are currently held by individuals whose terms are expiring. These individuals may or may not reapply for their positions. Per Vancouver City Council policy, all incumbents who wish to reapply for their positions will be re-interviewed along with any other qualifying applicants.
