The Parks & Recreation Commission (PRC) is a body of citizens appointed to advise the City’s Parks & Recreation Department staff and the Council on the development and operation of recreation programs and parks as well as the implementation of the Parks & Recreation Element of the General Plan. The PRC provides leadership in developing a comprehensive recreational program for city residents of all ages by being familiar with their wishes, plans for growth and future park needs and advises the Parks & Recreation Director on department administration. Since the absorption of the Committee on Shared Use of Recreational Facilities in early 2012, the PRC also advises Council and the San Luis Coastal Unified School District Board on policy for operation and priorities for granting use of city/school district joint use recreational facilities as well as plans for balanced integration of school district property being developed.

The Parks & Recreation Commission meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the City's Council Chambers at 990 Palm Street.  Shelly Stanwyck, Parks & Recreation Director, is the staff liaison, (805) 781-7300.

Jack House Committee

The Jack House Committee assists the Council and the Parks & Recreation Department in the administration and restoration of the historic Jack Residence at 536 Marsh Street. The Committee makes recommendations for basic rules and regulations which will allow for the greatest possible public use and enjoyment of the house and grounds while protecting and preserving the history and integrity of this cultural and recreational facility. The grant deed specifies that members of the Jack House Committee represent the County Historical Society, Cal Poly School of Architecture faculty, Cal Poly Department of Ornamental Horticulture faculty, Parks & Recreation Commission, and heirs of Robert and Nellie Jack. Two at-large members are also appointed to this committee. Committee members must be city residents except for the heir to the Jack family.

Meetings of the Jack House Committee are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 5:30 pm at the Parks & Recreation Department, 1341 Nipomo Street. David Setterlund, Community Services & Events Supervisor, serves as the staff liaison at (805) 781-7067.
