Openings on County Parks Advisory Board

The Board of Mason County Commissioners is seeking applications from community members who are interested in serving on the Mason County Parks and Trails Advisory Board.

The Mason County Parks and Trails Advisory Board provides recommendations to the Board of Commissioners regarding the planning, acquisition and development of parks, trails and related programs in Mason County.

The Parks and Trails Advisory Board is a seven member board appointed by the Mason County Commissioners. Ideally there would be two positions from each Commissioner District and one at-large position. Currently there is a need for board members from Commissioner Districts 1 and 2. If the vacancies cannot be filled with members from the respective districts as desired, at-large members residing anywhere in Mason County can be substituted. The intent is to provide equal geographic representation from throughout Mason County if possible.

If you have an interest in parks, trails, or other outdoor recreational opportunities and would like to make a difference in your community you are encouraged to apply.

The Mason County Parks and Trails Advisory Board meets the first Tuesday of each month at 5:00 PM.

Interested citizens may obtain an application at the Mason County Commissioners’ Office, 411 North 5th Street, Shelton, or by calling Shelton 360-427-9670, ext. 419; Belfair 360-275-4467, ext. 419; Elma 360- 482-5269, ext. 419 or visit the Mason County website at www.co.mason.wa.us. Applications will be accepted until positions are filled.
