- Being consulted whenever it is proposed to sell or lease municipal land that is held for park purposes or for other public recreation purposes, and to be consulted when it is proposed to acquire land for public recreation purposes.
- Provide input into agreements entered into by the Town for the enhancement of recreation opportunities.
The Commission itself operates on a Mission Statement that recognizes that the provision of parks, recreation and cultural services is essential to the health and well-being of our community.
