On November 4, 2008, the voters of Philadelphiaapproved an amendment to the Philadelphia Home Rule Charter to create a new unified Department of Parks and Recreation, along with a new Commission on Parks and Recreation to help guide this new department. On July 2, 2009, Mayor Nutter appointed the first members of the new Commission from a list of nominees submitted by City Council. Those terms will expire later this year, and it is now time for Council to submit the next list of nominees to the Mayor. All applicants will have a chance to speak at a public hearing before Council. You must submit an application by May 9 to be considered.
