City seeks volunteers to serve on Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission (Photo) - 05/13/24

Vancouver, Wash. – The City seeks local parks and recreation enthusiasts to fill two vacancies on its Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission (PRAC). Applications must be submitted by June 7.

PRA is a 10-member volunteer group of city residents, two school district representatives and a liaison from the Parks Foundation of Clark County. The commission advises Vancouver City Council and staff on needs, plans and programs necessary to provide an adequate system of parks, open space, playgrounds, facilities and recreation services to the residents of Vancouver. 

Commissioners serve three-year terms. Commissioners meet from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month at Vancouver City Hall, 415 W. Sixth St., as well as occasional special meetings. All meetings are currently being held as hybrid with in-person and virtual participation options.   

To serve on PRAC, applicants must live within the Vancouver City limits and be available for a virtual or phone interview with the Vancouver Mayor on a date to be determined. This recruitment is for two full-term appointments, with a term ending July 1, 2027. These seats are currently filled by incumbents seeking reappointment for their positions and will be re-interviewed along with any qualifying applicants, per Vancouver City Council policy.

Applications may be submitted online at For a printed application or for further information, contact the Boards and Commission Coordinator at P.O. Box 1995, Vancouver, WA 98668-1995, or 360-487-8600.
