Virginia Avenue Park Advisory Board

The Virginia Avenue Park Advisory Board (VAPAB) meets every first Monday of the month at 7 pm in the Thelma Terry Building.  The Virginia Avenue Park Advisory Board (VAPAB) was established by the City Council in 1982 to represent the interest of park users, program participants and neighbors of Virginia Avenue Park and to advise the Recreation and Parks Commission in assessing community needs that could be addressed through park programs and amenities. VAPAB serves as an advisory body to the Recreation and Parks Commission and the Director of Community and Cultural Services.

The VAPAB is composed of 7 Board members.  Board members must be Santa Monica residents.  The Board represents the social and ethnic diversity of the park's neighborhood and includes but is not limited to representatives of the following segments of the community: park users, park neighbors, park program participants, seniors, families with children, community organizations and older youth.

The VAPAB is currently accepting applications
