Parks, Recreation and Arts Commission
The City of Fresno’s Parks, Recreation and Arts Commission conducts hearings and receives public input on programs, facilities and services funded with Measure P. They then make recommendations to the city council for the adoption of expenditures in the annual budget.
The commission consists of nine members appointed by the mayor and approved by the city council:
The Fresno Parks, Recreation & Arts Commission met on Monday night to discuss draft updates and a timeline for the Cultural Arts Plan, which was released just prior to the meeting and is now open for public comments through June 5.
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.
At the Feb. 6 Fresno Parks, Recreation and Arts Commission meeting, residents voiced support for the extension of warming centers through the end of February and concerns about access to Measure P spending information.
