Southampton Township and the Borough of Shippensburg are contemplating creating a Park & Recreation Authority to manage the Memorial Park, Dykeman Springs Nature Park, Dentler Village Park, the community pool and a few other pocket parks.
The new authority would require two (2) board members from the township.
Once the four (4) member board is appointed, one more member will be appointed by the new authority members to bring the complement to five (5).
Our township is accepting resumes of interest from citizens that would be excited to actively participate in the management of these facilities and the programs and recreational opportunities that they offer.
A Full Time Park and Recreation Manager will be hired to perform the day to day operations and this board will meet, at a minimum, every 1st Thursday of the month at 7 pm.
The final decision whether to create this authority will occur in February of 2015. We need to receive resumes of interest starting now.
Please send us a letter or email with your interest. Also include a narrative about yourself with information like why you are interested in Parks and Recreation in our community, what skills or benefits your participation would bring to the new board and any other relevant information that would help us understand the value of selecting you for this most important position.
Our address is, Southampton Township, 705 Municipal Drive, Shippensburg, PA 17257 or email is firstname.lastname@example.org
