Resident Advisory Committees

 

The success of any governmental agency can only be accomplished with ongoing conversations and input with the residents it serves.   Since 2009, the Park District of Highland Park has conducted volunteer resident advisory committees chaired by members of the Park Board.   These committees provide invaluable ongoing feedback on our facilities, programming and sustainability efforts.  Resident advisory committees are chaired by members of the Park Board and comprised of volunteer members who represent the users of the various facilities/programs.
For more information on how you can be an advisory committee member, call 847.831.3810.
