Parks Facilities Committee

Contact the Parks Facilities Committee
 

The members of this committee are appointed by the Town Administrator.  The Committee consists of nine residents appointed to three year terms; two members of the Board of Selectmen, two members of the Parks Commission and five residents of the town.

Mission (modified by Board of Selectmen, March 1, 2017)

The mission of the Parks Facilities Committee is to assess the physical condition of the Town’s recreational facilities and to coordinate with the Parks Commission and the Community in developing plans to address the need for repairs and improvements to such recreational facilities.  Such plans must be consistent with the Open Space and Recreation Section (Chapter 7) of the Master Plan of 2005 (or as amended) in the areas of pool and summer recreation program facilities, land acquisition for the development of additional fields (soccer, baseball, softball and football), the town’s track and stadium area, the town’s courts (basketball and tennis), and any other parks facilities needs as they may arise.

The role of the Parks Facilities Committee is advisory. The Parks Commission, the Board of Selectmen and the Town Administrator will make the determination as to incorporating any PFC’s recommendations.  Should the recommendations of the Parks Facility Committee be accepted by the Parks Commission and the Board of Selectmen,  the Parks Facility Committee will act in the same manner as the Facilities Implementation and Planning Committee does for town facilities, by being the committee responsible for who leads and oversees the hiring of architects and engineers and related consultants for project design, bidding of any project construction, and oversight of the project construction through the completion stage.  These activities are to be done by carefully collaborating with the Parks Commission to ensure the projects being designed and implemented adequately meet the needs of the community’s parks and programs. It is imperative that the Parks Commission be in support of any project prior to implementation as they are the Commission responsible for the care and maintenance of the facilities upon completion.

Creation
The Parks Facilities Committee was established by vote of the Board of Selectmen on July 5, 2006 and was originally configured of seven members.  An additional resident slot was added at the November 7, 2012 meeting of the Board of Selectmen and the current configuration was voted on May 15, 2013.
