Agendas & Meetings
The Parks Committee is the advisory body to the City Council regarding the development, maintenance and operation of parks, recreation, and open space programs in the City. Parks Committee is made up of volunteers who value and provide adequate, useful, and attractive parks and open areas to promote public health and fitness, provide for leisure activities, maintain property values, and sustain a high quality of life in the community.
The Parks and Recreation Committee's Mission Statement is as follows:
"To improve the quality of life for the citizens of Centerville by providing green space for a variety of year-round programs, leisure time activities and community special events that contribute to the physical, social and emotional well-being of citizens of all ages."
