Parks Advisory Committee

EGP Strauss Bridge - Small

Volunteer advisory committees are an integral part of local government, intended to provide advice and recommendations from a resident’s perspective. Advisory committees help plan the future of their communities, bringing together disparate views that might not otherwise be heard.

As the size and scope of the Cosumnes Community Services District (District) has grown, so has the need for public engagement and education about landscape maintenance and funding. Therefore, the Parks Advisory Committee (Committee) has been created to improve communication between the District and public.


The Committee meets regularly at 6 pm on the 2nd Tuesday of every-other month.  Meetings are held at the Cosumnes CSD District Office, 8820 Elk Grove Blvd., Elk Grove, CA 95624.

PAC (formerly LLDAC) Meeting Agendas can be found at our Agenda Center.

The District maintains an up-to-date listing of the current Parks Advisory Committee Members (PDF).
