Commission on Parks & Recreation Meeting

One of the main responsibilities of the new Commission on Parks and Recreation is to establish for the first time ever, guidelines for the use and protection of parkland and facilities.

Mayor Nutter has charged the Commission with developing legislation to make that protection binding. To that end, the Commission's Land Use Committee has prepared a draft ordinance. They have asked the Parks Alliance to help circulate the draft ordinance for public review and comment.

The September 22nd Commission meeting will be devoted to public comment. To comment prior to that meeting or to request that a Commissioner attend your organization or Friends Group meeting, send an email to or call Commission Chair Nancy Goldenberg at 215-440-5548.

The Parks Alliance will post our comments and questions regarding the draft ordinance after Labor Day.
