Big Bear Valley, CA, June 4, 2013 – The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors approved the reinstatement of the Big Bear Valley Recreation and Park District (BBVRPD) Advisory Commission at their June 4 meeting.

The commission will consist of seven members representing various geographical areas of Big Bear Valley, working closely with  BBVRPD General Manager Reese Troublefield and receiving reports on recreation programming and park improvements.

Reese says, “The Big Bear Valley Recreation & Park District Advisory Commission has been an integral part of the ongoing improvements to local parks, facilities, and programming.  The Commission performs a very important function in connecting Park District staff to the various local communities of the Big Bear valley, and representing local citizens as the Recreation and Parks liaison’s with Supervisor Ramos’ office.  Parks District staff looks forward to working with our new Advisory Commission toward continual improvement in our services.”

The Board also approved a Sugarloaf Advisory Committee to provide an extra avenue for Sugarloaf residents to voice their concerns. That Commission will also consist of seven members.
