Park Commission/Tree Board Vacancy

The Village has a vacancy on its Park Commission/Tree Board and is seeking applicants to be considered for appointment. Members are appointed by the Village Board to act as an advisory body to the Village Board to develop plans and make recommendations to improve or enhance the Village park system and urban forest. The system includes parks, trails, conservancy areas, park shelters and other associated facilities. The Commission is responsible for the establishment and oversight of recreational programs and also promotes and recommends the planting and care of trees in the road right-of-way and other public places. The Park Commission also assists in the preparation of a Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (CORP) which is typically updated at least every five years.

The Commission consists of seven members that meet the second Monday of the month at the Village Hall/Public Safety Building (3100 Eaton Road) at 6:00 p.m. The Commission works closely with the Village Director of Parks, Recreation & Forestry, Stephanie Schlag.

If you are interested in submitting an application of interest to be considered for appointment on the Park Commission/Tree Board or any other Village committee, please fill out an application and submit it to the Village; Attn: Assistant to the Administrator.  The Application Form can be found on the Village website.
