Parks and Recreation Governance Special Committee

The Parks and Recreation Governance Special Committee was born from a proposal brought forward at the July 20, 2021, Executive Committee meeting. The concept was to establish an Executive Committee organized Task Force, to work in concert with the Centre Region Parks and Recreation Authority and the municipalities, to determine:

  • The best mission and/or purpose for the Authority for the future
  • The best governance structure to achieve that mission/purpose
  • The best governing documents to achieve that mission/purpose – Bylaws, MOU’s, AoA’s, etc.
  • Additional supporting tasks assigned by the Executive Committee
  • The associated COG committee structure/relationship to support/supplement the work of the Authority, so that CRPR can provide cost-effective, consistent, and high-quality parks and recreation services to have a positive impact on the quality of life of those living, working, and playing in the Centre Region.


This Special Committee typically meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 8:30 AM in the COG General Forum Room and via Zoom.
