COMMISSION PROFILE

The purpose of the Parks, Recreation and Education Commission is to act in an advisory capacity to the City Council in matters pertaining to park recreation facilities and programs. The objectives of the Commission are:

Cooperate with other governmental agencies and civic groups in the advancement of sound recreation and parks planning and programming.
Recommend plans for the acquisition, development, beautification and maintenance of public park and recreational area.
Recommend ideas for implementation of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan.
Advise the City Council on long range parks, recreation and educational programs.

The Commission is also committed to serving as a key educational advocate and advisor to the Calabasas community.  We exist to encourage that excellence in education is established, embraced, and perpetuated for present and future generations.  The Commission defines education in its broadest sense as encompassing the life-long quest for enhanced knowledge, abilities, skills, attitudes and values on both an individual and community level.

The Commission is comprised of 6 voting members, each of whom are residents of the City of Calabasas, and a non-voting student member representing Calabasas area schools. Resident Commission members are appointed by a majority vote of the City Council for a term of 2 years. Commissioners are selected for their familiarity with the issues, interests and needs of the community regarding parks, recreation and education services within the City of Calabasas.
