 Meeting Agenda

The Redmond Parks and Trails Commission is a group of nine volunteers appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council, who advise the mayor and council on parks, trails, and recreational facility planning and programming in the city. The commission also interfaces with the broader community so that it can represent community members' interests to the City Council.
