Park Board

The Park Board is an advisory committee responsible for annually preparing a landscaping plan for City parks. Duties include reporting on maintenance of islands, statuary, stone pedestals, stone walls, selecting annual plantings, and redesigning islands in need of updating. Details on submitting a project for the Park Board's consideration can be found by clicking this link.
The Board consists of 10 to 17 voting members appointed to three-year terms. There is a team responsible for each of the three Mission Hills homes associations: Indian Hills Homes Association, Mission Hills Homes Company, and Tomahawk Road Homes Association. Each team has three to five members, including one member who is on the board of the homes association.
Lorelei Gibson is the Chair of the Park Board and can be reached by contacting City Hall. Bill Bruning is the Council Liaison to the Park Board.
