“Our boards and advisory bodies have been established by city council to aid in gathering public input,” said Julie Dahlen, director of library and recreation services for the city. “We encourage interested individuals to apply to be part of these valuable committees that make such an important difference in our community.”

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee provides information regarding recreational areas such as parks and playgrounds; provides interpretation of community recreation programs; and makes policy suggestions for consideration. This committee meets on the second Monday of the month at 4 p.m. at Centennial Park.
The Senior Citizen advisory committee makes recommendations regarding issues of interest to senior citizens. Applicants must be at least 55 years of age. The advisory committee meets on the second Monday of the month at 1:30 p.m. at the Senior Center.
The Paso Robles Youth Commission invites students in ninth through 12th grade to serve as liaisons between the youth/teen community and the city council. Commissioners become familiar with city departments and suggest and review policies, programs, and services relating to youth/teen issues. Members can expect to dedicate at least three hours per month to this commission. Meetings are the first Wednesday of the month at 2:30 p.m. in the Paso Robles School District conference room.
