Volunteers sought for Clark County parks board

By , Columbian staff writer

Clark County is looking for volunteers to fill three vacancies on its parks advisory board. All three positions begin immediately. Two of the terms end Dec. 31, 2024, and one ends Dec. 31, 2025. Board members serve three-year terms. Upon expiration of a term, a member can apply again. There is no limit on how many terms a member can serve.

The Parks Advisory Board advises the Clark County Council and county staff on parks planning, acquisition, development and related issues. Applicants must be residents of Clark County. The county is looking for applicants from historically underserved or underrepresented populations including residents who can bring ethnic, cultural, and geographic diversity to the group. A board member located in north Clark County or in a rural area is preferred to assist with geographic diversity.

The advisory board meets the second Tuesday of each month, typically at the Public Works Operations Center, 4700 N.E. 78th St., Bldg. B-1, which is served by C-TRAN’s Route 78. The board is currently holding meetings in a hybrid format using Microsoft Teams in conjunction with the in-person gatherings.

Interested 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 michelle.pfenning@clark.wa.gov.

Applications are due by 5 p.m., June 17.

More information about the parks board is available on the county’s website, www.clark.wa.gov/public-works/parks-advisory-board.
