- CRICH 401
Part of City of Richmond fonds
Series consists of minutes (and reports as attachments to minutes) of the Parks and Recreation Commission meeting in open session (Subseries 1) and in camera (Subseries 2). Minutes span the period from 1958 to 1994 and incorporate the minutes (1958-1959) of the Richmond Recreation Commission. There are no minutes of open meetings of the Parks and Recreation Commission in 1987 as its functions were assumed by a standing committee of Council. No in-camera minutes of meetings exist for 1985 and 1986. Commission minutes document the development, planning and implementation of recreation programs and facilities in Richmond. Topics and initiatives include parkland acquisition, renovation and upgrading of existing facilities, monitoring of rental and lease agreements, recreation facility assessment studies, and funding decisions relating to these activities. Records in this series also document the ongoing relations between the Parks and Recreation Commission, the Leisure Services Advisory Committee and its predecessor the Recreation Advisory Council, Richmond School Board, Municipal Council, and a variety of recreational and cultural organizations.
