Parks and Recreation Commission

Yorba Linda is blessed with some of the finest park and recreation facilities in Orange County. The responsibility for advising the City Council on these facilities and other matters relating to community recreation programs falls to the five-member Parks & Recreation Commission. Appointed by the City Council to four-year terms, the members of this Commission also review the annual budget for the Department of Parks & Recreation as well as any capital improvement projects relating to park development and maintenance.

AUDIO/VISUAL PRESENTATIONS:  To allow meetings to progress smoothly and limit the City's expsure to technological viruses and liability, all audio/visual presentations (including PowerPoints) must be delivered to the Recording Secretary's Office by 12:00 p.m. (noon) the day before the meeting.  It is the responsibility of presenters to confirm the Recording Secretary's Office received their presentations.  In addition, presenters should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the meeting to check in with City staff regarding their presentations and should deliver at least eight (8) hard copies of their presentation to the Recording Secretary's Office before the meeting so they may be distributed to the members of the Commission or Committee.  A standard fee will be charged to the presenter should the Recording Secretary need to make the copies.  Failure to comply with the policy may result in a presenter not being permitted to use City equipment to show his or her audio/visual presentation.  Presenters may still speak without the aid of electronic visuals.
