Parks & Recreation
The role of Community Recreation Advisory Groups (CRGs) is to make recommendations to City Council, the Department, and its various boards with respect to recreation programs in the community and to provide recommendations on the expenditure of Recreation Center Funds. The City does not delegate any authority to Advisory Groups to act on behalf of the City. Advisory Groups are voluntarily created and maintained by their members.
Advisory Groups are subject to California’s Open Meeting Law, the Ralph M. Brown Act, California Government Code sections 54950 through 54963 (Brown Act). On March 19, 2020, the Governor issued an executive order proclaiming a State of Emergency due to the existing threat of COVID-19. This order provided direction to not hold any meetings or gatherings until the threat is over and relaxed certain provisions of the Brown Act. EXECUTIVE ORDER N-25-20, Rule 11, states that a local legislative body public may hold meetings teleconferencing and make public meetings accessible telephonically or otherwise electronically to all members of the public seeking to attend and to address the local legislative body.
The Parks and Recreation Department has created a new virtual meeting option for the Department for Board, Committee and Community advisory meetings. Agendas will be posted at least 72 hours prior to each meeting and the links for meeting agendas are provided below. Agendas will contain information pertaining to meeting dates, times, the informational and action items to be discussed, instructions for providing public comment during the meeting, and a link to view public meetings live through YouTube.
