The building or facility locations of the meetings have not yet been determined and will be announced at the close of each regular meeting.

Regular meetings run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and include an opportunity for public comment. The commission typically meets in a work session from approximately noon to 4:30 p.m. the day prior to the regular meeting in the same location or at a location near the regular meeting location. Work sessions are educational sessions on park operations and issues that eventually may go before the commission.

The commission may also tour area sites or parks the day following the regular meeting. No public comment and no formal action are taken at work sessions and tours. The commission chair may call special meetings at any time; all special meetings are announced in advance.

The public is welcome to attend all state park and recreation commission meetings. Meeting sites will be barrier free to the greatest extent feasible. The commission will provide Braille or taped agenda items for the visually impaired and interpreters for those with hearing impairments if a request is received at the appropriate address shown above at least ten working days in advance of the scheduled meeting date.

Agendas are posted on the agency web site at least one week in advance of meetings, and commission action posted within a week after the meeting.
