Environment & Parks Committee

Our Environment and Parks Committee usually meets on the third Wednesday of each month from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. at the Merriam Park Recreation Center. Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 17th 2020. If you are interested in joining the Committee, you’ll need to attend three consecutive meetings to become a voting member. Learn more about joining a committee here.

The Committee identifies community needs within our current parks and explores ideas for future ones, works to secure improvements to our parks, and supports activities within them. The Committee also makes recommendations on the use of funds earned through a cell phone tower lease agreement, for park activities and improvements. If you have an issue you’d like to bring to the Committee, please contact  wako@unionparkdc.org.
