  • Advise the Public Works Parks Division Staff and the Board of Trustees on content and implementation of technical standards for public and private parks, trails, plantings, noxious weeds and pest control.

  • Support the Community environmental/wetlands educational programs in the schools and community efforts on river restoration, clean up, bank re-vegetation and water quality protection.

Art in Public Places

The Parks Advisory Board has created the Art in Public Places (AIPP) program which describes the process and criteria to be used when evaluating potential public works of art and projects for Town display. This program will enrich the community by weaving public art into everyday experiences and creating lasting impressions on those who encounter it.
