ORANGE COUNTY, NC (August 24, 2017) – One major way citizens can have a positive impact on the future of Orange County is to volunteer to serve on the various advisory boards and commissions. 

There is currently an opening on the Orange County Parks and Recreation Council. 

The Orange County Parks & Recreation Council consults with and advises the Department of Environment, Agriculture, Parks and Recreation, and the Board of County Commissioners on matters affecting parks planning, development and operation; recreation facilities, policies and programs; and public trails and open space. 

The Orange County Parks & Recreation Council includes representatives from each of the county’s townships plus its municipalities.

Orange County is currently seeking representation from Bingham Township.
