Committee Meetings
The Board of Commissioners also serve on Board Committees, which include; Committee of the Whole, Administration, Audit, Finance, Lakefront Advisory, Parks and Beaches, Project Oversight, Recreation and Revenue Facilities. These committees meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 5:30 pm, when needed, to review and evaluate staff recommendations and supporting documentation. After a Board Committee has reviewed and reached a consensus on an item, the item is brought to the full Park Board for final review and/or approval.

Staff Role
The Executive Director, Chief Financial Officer, Communication/Marketing Manager, Superintendent of Facilities, Superintendent of Parks, Superintendent of Recreation and Administrative Manager/Safety Coordinator regularly attend Board and Committee meetings to discuss agenda items with the Park Board. Other Park District staff attend meetings at the request of the Executive Director or Park Board.

Special Meetings
Occasionally, the Board may call a special meeting to discuss a topic in greater depth or to consider a matter that requires action prior to the next regularly scheduled meeting. Notices of special meetings, including the meeting’s agenda, will be posted on our website and at the Winnetka Park District office at least 48 hours prior to the meeting.

Public Hearings
As a part of the planning process of a special project or issue, the Board may conduct public hearings. The purpose for these meetings is to provide residents with information on a specific topic and seek input.
