Clark County seeks volunteers for Parks Advisory Board

By , Columbian staff writer

Do you have a passion for parks and recreation? Clark County wants you — for the Parks Advisory Board, that is. The county is looking for volunteers to fill four vacancies on the board. Each position serves a three-year term beginning Jan. 1.

When a term expires, the board member can apply again, and there is no limit to how many terms a member can serve.

The board advises the Clark County Council and county staff on parks planning, acquisition, development and related issues. Applicants must be residents of Clark County.

Those with a love of parks and working knowledge of recreational facilities, and who can volunteer beyond the monthly meetings, are encouraged to apply. The board also encourages applications from candidates with knowledge, ability and experience working with a broad range of individuals and communities with diverse racial, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. Although not required for the position, candidates fluent in a language in addition to English should include that information in their application.

The advisory board meets from 4 to 6 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month and is currently holding virtual meetings using WebEx. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, it typically met at the Public Works Operations Center, 4700 N.E. 78th St., Bldg. B-1, which is served by C-Tran’s Route 78.

Applicants should submit a brief letter of interest and resume to Michelle Pfenning, County Manager’s Office, P.O. Box 5000, Vancouver, WA 98666-5000 or by email at The application deadline is 5 p.m. Nov. 12.
