park board

The Glenview Park District is governed by a seven-member Board of Commissioners.

These dedicated individuals come from a variety of backgrounds, serve without compensation, and are directly responsible to the electorate. Each Glenview Park District Board Commissioner serves a six-year term. Elections to fill two or three of the seven positions are held every two years during a Consolidated Election. Any resident of the Glenview Park District who meets the requirements set forth by the Cook County Board of elections is eligible to run for a seat on the park board.

Park Board meetings are currently being held in person. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Glenview Park District has adapted based on state guidelines for meetings and events. During stricter mitigations, the Park Board has shifted to virtual meetings.

When Park Board Meetings are held virtually, agendas for each meeting will be posted at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting per usual. Each agenda will include a link to attend the meeting virtually, along with a link to submit public comment. Submitted comments will be read during the Board Meeting and will include the name of the resident and their question or comment. There will also be an opportunity for the public attending the Board meeting virtually to give oral comments during the “Public Comments” segment of the meeting. All public comments will be limited to 3 minutes. Total time allotted for Public Comment is 30 minutes.

The Glenview Park District maintains this website with background on the district, current programs, and meeting agendas. A file of background material for the meetings is available at the park district Administrative Office and at the Glenview Public Library. For information on upcoming park district events and programs, residents can subscribe to the park district’s e-newsletter or follow the park district on social media (click the icons found at the top left of this page to find us on social media).

The Glenview Park District produces a seasonal program guide which is available digitally on our homepage. The seasonal program guide is also mailed out to all residents of the district four times a year in February, May, July, and November. There are also bulletin boards at each park district facility to alert the public to upcoming events.

The public can write the park district at 1930 Prairie St. or send email inquiries to info@glenviewparks.org. The public is also invited to attend the monthly Glenview Park District public board meetings. Anyone interested in making comments or asking questions at a regular park board or park board committee meeting should indicate this by signing a comment card, available at each meeting, and indicating that you would like to speak or have your comment read. 

Agenda items are introduced by the Park District Committee Chair with background information presented by the committee members and staff. Committee reports on action are considered a seconded motion. Any items for which there are public comment cards will be addressed and the public called on following Commissioner discussion. Once all public comments have been addressed, the discussion will return to the Commissioner level for any additional discussion, motion adjustment and formal action.

While the Park Board values the opportunity to hear and consider public comments, it does not normally respond to audience comments at its meeting. A question or request may be accepted and answered at a later meeting, and if so, the individual or organization initiating the question or request will be notified of the date and time of the meeting. In some cases, the District administration will follow up with answers either via email or a phone call.

As open public meetings, there is press coverage of the monthly business meetings. A “Meeting Highlights” summary report of actions taken is produced as soon as possible following each meeting. It can be found online, in the file at the park district office and at the Library. An archive of meeting agendas, highlights and minutes are also available on this website. Park Board meetings are audio or video recorded and made available to the public by request, as provided by law.
