Board of Directors

CRPD is governed by a directly elected Board of five Directors who generally meet twice per month. The meetings are open to the public; you are welcome to attend any time. The Board discusses the budget during April, May, and June. We value your input before or during these meetings. If you have any questions, send us an email or give us a call. We have lots of information about our parks and recreation programs. Regular board meetings are held at 6:00pm twice per month on Thursday evenings at the Hillcrest Center, 403 W. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360. Please check our website calendar for specific dates.
