The City of Redmond is recruiting a new volunteer member for the Parks and Trails Commission.

Commissioners meet once a month on the first Thursday and serve four-year terms that may be renewed. Commissioners also participate on special committees and attend public meetings and events; cultivate community engagement around parks and recreation department projects and programs; and occasionally meet with City Council and other commissions, as appropriate.

The Parks and Trails Commission has one open position for Redmond residents. The commission advises the mayor and City Council on parks, trails and recreational facility planning and programming in the city. The commission also interfaces with the broader community, so that it can represent community members’ interests to the City Council. The work program for the commission currently includes advising staff and City Council on the Capital Investment Strategy for long-term parks projects, the future of Redmond’s community centers, various planning and capital projects, recreational programming fees and strategies, park rules, a tree canopy strategy and an American’s with Disabilities Act Transition Plan for the parks system.

To learn more about the commissions or to apply, download a community service application at and email it to, mail to the Office of the Mayor, City of Redmond, PO Box 97010, Redmond, WA 98073-9710 or fax to (425) 556-2110. A copy of the community service application is also available in the mayor’s office on the fourth floor of City Hall. To obtain a hard copy of the application, call (425) 556-2101. There is no deadline for applications, but interested citizens are encouraged to submit an application by March 24.
