Tucson Parks and Recreation Commission
The City of Tucson Parks and Recreation Commission serves as a citizen advisory panel to the Mayor and Council. The Commission's role is to make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council regarding: recreational activities and park facilities within the City; operations policy and procedures; user fees; park development; and park name changes.
Each member of the Mayor and Council appoints one member to the Commission. Commissioner terms are coterminous with the terms of the Mayor and City Council member who appointed them, or until their successor is appointed. Commissioners may serve a maximum of 8 years. The Commission conducts one regular meeting per month (4th Wednesday of the month) and typically does not meet during the months of June, July and August.
