The Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department is looking for volunteers to serve on its North Park Region Advisory Council.



The council meets at 6 p.m. on the second Monday of each month at the Park and Recreation headquarters, 5841 Brookshire Blvd. Prospective members can expect to commit 4 to 6 hours monthly in regional activities such as the meetings, park inspections and park tours.



Council members serve as liaisons between the Park and Recreation Department and citizens of the county. All councils report to the Park and Recreation Commission. Councils offer advice on recreation promotion, marketing, membership, programming, planning and other leisure services, as well as long-range planning for capital projects and development for indoor and outdoor recreation.



Anyone interested in serving should go to the park department website, www.parkandrec.com, click on “Inside the Department” and select “Advisory Councils.”
