Duties and responsibilities of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board include advising the City Council and staff in all matters pertaining to Parks and Recreation. This Board is also charged with making recommendations to the City to help protect and preserve the City’s environmental resources through education and recommending environmental programs and services. This is done in coordination with appropriate State and Federal agencies. In addition, the Board hears appeals on the decisions of the planning director in regards to enforcement of the City’s noise ordinance as well as actions by neighborhood services staff enforcing the City’s graffiti ordinance.

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board have 12 meetings per year. In addition to the monthly meetings, additional training is provided annually from the City Attorney regarding the responsibilities as board members. Each member is encouraged to volunteer for the Downtown Special Events, holiday ceremonies, the Rowlett Community Centre activities, and Keep Rowlett Beautiful.
