The Cordova Recreation and Park District’s Board of Directors Oath of Office was held on December 16, 2020.
Board of Directors
As CRPD’s governing body, the Board of Directors is responsible for the budget and for setting policies that safeguard the vitality of the district. The five non-partisan members of the Board of Directors are elected to four-year terms by residents located within CRPD’s boundaries. The elected board is held accountable to the following laws that govern public officials: The Brown Act, California Public Records Act, FPPC Reporting Requirements and biannual ethics training.
The Board of Directors meets on the third Wednesday of each month. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. in Chambers located on the first floor of 2729 Prospect Park Drive in Rancho Cordova, unless otherwise noted on the agenda. Board meetings are open to the public. Meeting agendas and board-approved minutes are available online or in person from the district office.
How can I communicate with the CRPD Board of Directors?
If you wish to communicate with the Board of Directors you can reach them directly by email. There is also a public comment period during every board meeting where the community can address district issues. The board can listen to comments, but state law prohibits the Board of Directors from discussing items that are not included in the agenda. To have an item added to the agenda, please submit a written request to the Clerk of the Board by 5 p.m. three weeks prior to the meeting.
How do I apply to be on the Board of Directors?
CRPD’s Board of Directors is elected by residents of the district during the general election. There are five seats on the board. The four-year terms are staggered with general elections occurring during even-numbered years. To be eligible to serve as a Board Member, candidates must be a voter within the Cordova Recreation and Park District and over 18. Board members must complete an Ethics training certification every 2 years and submit a Form-700 (Statement of Economic Interests) annually.
