The Recreation Commission is a state-enabled body created by the Mayor and the City Council. The Commission consists of a minimum of five and a maximum of nine members, appointed by the Mayor. All members must be residents of the City of Alpharetta, except one member who may come from the Milton High School district. The members are appointed for five-year terms. The Commission meets on the second Thursday of each month, at 7:30 p.m., in the City Hall Council Chambers. All meetings are open to the public.
The Commission is charged with directing the City’s recreation programs to include budgeting, planning and staffing. The Commission adopts and implements the City’s Recreation Master Plan, which serves as a blueprint for development of facilities and programs.
