Feb. 27, 2023 — Fresno Parks, Recreation, and Arts Commission

Documented by Kendra Staub

What happened: At the Feb. 27 Fresno Parks, Recreation, and Arts Commission meeting many local arts organizations and community members spoke in support of the Fresno Arts Council managing the dispersement of Measure P funds, rather than the Fresno Parks Department. No decision has been made yet.

And also: The commission learned that the Fresno Parks Department is working on adding more pocket parks throughout the city, with two currently in the works.

A new calendar for 2023 was adopted and the commission will now only meet once per month.

Next up: The commission will meet again on April 17 at 5:30 p.m.
