City of Redmond seeks volunteers for Parks and Trails Commission

The position is a four-year term and those interested are encouraged to apply by March 4.

The City of Redmond is encouraging residents who live within the 98052 zip code to apply for a four-year term position for the Parks and Trails Commission. The city is devoted to having a Parks and Trails Commission that reflects the diversity of the community.

Those interested in the future of parks, recreation, and trails in the city of Redmond are encouraged to apply, including those who have applied in the past. Mandatory Parks and Trails Commission meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month, and for the time being, are being held virtually.

“The City values commissioners who can connect with a broad spectrum of parks and trails users, as well as those who will represent community members’ interests at meetings with City Council and the commission,” read the city’s press release.

Commissioners will advise staff and city councilmembers on projects, including Parks, Arts, Recreation, Culture, and Conservation (PARCC) Plan updates; Redmond Central Connecter Phase 3 trail project; recreational programming strategies; and planning and capital projects for parks and trails.

Those interested in the position are encouraged to apply by March 4. One position is available on the commission, and the start date will be in April.
