SUBJECT:
Title
CONSIDER APPROVING THE RESUMPTION OF THE PARKS AND RECREATION COMMISSION TO VIRTUAL REGULAR MONTHLY MEETINGS TO ADVISE THE COMMUNITY SERVICES DEPARTMENT ON ESSENTIAL REOPENING PROGRAMS AND VARIOUS PLANNING INITIATIVES (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

In March 2020 the City Council suspended the operation of all non-essential commissions and committees due to the global pandemic outbreak known as COVID-19. Additionally, all parks and recreation programs and activities were immediately cancelled until further notice to help stem the spread of the virus at city facilities and in the community. After 8 months of non-activity, and at the direction of City Council, the Community Services Department has slowly started to deliver programs to the community while adhering to re-opening protocols prescribed by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. As a result, staff is requesting the resumption of virtual regular monthly meetings of the Parks and Recreation Commission to provide oversight and approval of parks, recreation, and cultural arts programs for the City of Carson. Additionally, there is a recent effort to provide modified programming to the community and the Commission may advise on essential re-opening activities and various planning initiatives forecast in the next calendar year.

II. RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation

TAKE the following actions:
1. APPROVE the resumption of the Parks and Recreation Commission to virtual regular monthly meetings.


Body
III. ALTERNATIVES

TAKE any other action the City Council deems appropriate.
