You may have noticed two black solar bollards near the walking path on West Bench Hill Road. Yes, I know they are different heights, the wrong color, and pretty pathetic looking. These are two test installations of a product we are considering for unlit portions of the path. We want to see how the bollards perform in action (light, durability, and so on) before we spend a bunch of money.
Every year we send out a call for volunteers for the Area F Parks Commission. The Parks Commission is a group of local residents who volunteer their time (handful of times per year) to help make decisions regards parks, trails, and recreation. Their role is primarily to help the RDOS proiritize spending and service levels.
Most Parks Commission members serve for a few years. But we put the call out every year to help cover natural attrition. Please see the call for interest below if you would like more information.
