The committee provides recommendations to the Creedmoor Parks and Recreation Department, the City Manager, and the Board of Commissioners regarding recreation policies, fees, facilities, community programs, long-range planning, and acquisition/ disposition of land. In addition, its members expand upon depart-mental goals and objectives to provide citizen and community stake-holder perspectives, serve as a liaison between city officials and citizens, strive to maintain a high standard for a visually appealing community through the effective management of natural, human, and financial resources, and work toward developing public interest in activities provided by recreation staff.
To ensure a well-rounded representation of Creedmoor, the committee consists of ten (10) members and includes city residents and key stakeholders from the city’s business, land development, education, faith-based, youth sports, family, and senior communities.
Term Length & Appointments
Committee members serve staggered two-year terms, therefore several seats are available each year for appointment of new members or reappointment of current members who wish to continue service.
A notice of available committee seats is published annually in July with the Creedmoor Board of Commissioners considering the applications for appointment at their regular August meeting. All terms begin on September 1.
If a member must resign prior to the expiration of his/her term, the member shall submit a letter of resignation to the City Clerk who will notify the Board of Commissioners, City Manager, CPRC members, and recreation staff. A vacancy which occurs as a result of a member’s resignation may be filled with a mid-term appointment by the Board of Commissioners.
Meetings are held bi-monthly at Creedmoor City Hall on the fourth Tuesday of even-numbered months (i.e., February, April, June, August, October, and December). Election of the Committee Chair occurs annually at the February meeting. All meetings are open to the public.
Member attendance is critically important to the effectiveness and mission of the CPRC. Members are asked for a commitment to attend at least four (4) of the six (6) meetings held during the year.
