The purpose of RDAC will be to advise Ashland Parks and Recreation Commissioners on matters related to the Recreation Division. The Recreation Division oversees the operations of the Ashland Rotary Centennial Ice Rink, Daniel Meyer Memorial Pool, North Mountain Park Nature Center, indoor and outdoor facility rentals, volunteer (VIP program), special events and general youth, adult and therapeutic recreation programs.
The new committee will be made up of nine (9) members, seven (7) of which will be program participants or community partners. In addition, there will be two (2) Ashland Parks and Recreation Commissioners. RDAC member terms will be three (3) years, with no member serving more than two (2) consecutive terms.
Once RDAC members are appointed by Ashland Parks and Recreation Commissioners, they will create Bylaws, in collaboration with APRC staff and the approval of the Commission, at a regular business meeting. The RDAC may also choose to develop a strategic plan and revise their mission and vision statement concurrent with the adopted goals of the Commissioners.
The Recreation Division, a division of APRC, is located at The Grove 1195 E. Main Street in Ashland. Learn more about the Recreation Division at AshlandParksandRec.org
