Peoria Park District Ad Hoc Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC)
The CAC helps the Park District communicate with the people it serves.
The CAC members give their personal opinions on community parks and recreation. They don't speak for their organizations.
The Park District can better understand community needs with help from the CAC. This helps them carry out their mission.
Fifteen members, who must be Peoria Park District residents, make up the CAC.
The President of the Peoria Park District Board appoints them for one-year terms.
Members may be re-appointed for two total terms of service.
To be fair, each part of the district should have a balanced membership.
The Southern District will have 2 members.
The Central District will have 6 members.
The Northern District will have 4 members.
There will be 3 members at large.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE CAC:
Help the Peoria Park District by giving feedback and suggesting ways to improve and grow.
Assist in the solicitation of resident feedback.
Help the District understand citizen concerns and be responsive to community needs.
Serve as "secret shoppers" attending selected District events or activities and providing feedback.
The CAC will meet four times per year in April, June, August, and October.
Agendas will be set by PPD staff with the input of the Board of Trustees and the CAC chair/membership.
DESIRED SKILLS AND INTERESTS:
The CAC members will come from different parts of the community and have various interests.
The CAC will not include a member representing a specific viewpoint or a specific user group.
Members are users of parks and recreation in our communities.
