Function/Purpose

Realizing that open space was more than just recreational parks and that it included agricultural, natural, and semi-natural lands within and around the City, the City Council unanimously passed in 1996 a resolution establishing the Open Space and Habitat Commission.  Some of the Commission's key functions include:

  • Advise the City Council on all matters relating to open space issues, programs and projects including those dealing with habitat. Areas that may be included are issues related to natural areas, wildlife and wildlife habitat, agricultural land conservation, land acquisition, regional parks, trail systems, environmental education and interpretation, project site design, and project operations and maintenance.
  • Monitor the implementation of the City's open space objectives and identifies solutions to implementation problems.
  • Serve as the focal point for the community and City government for open space projects and issues.
  • Work cooperatively with the Planning Commission, the Recreation and Parks Commission, and other City and community groups on issues of mutual interest.
