About the Recreation Commission

Our Vision

The vision of the Spring Hill Recreation Commission is to strive to develop, provide, and maintain quality programs and facilities that meet the growing needs of our community.

Our Mission

We are committed to providing quality recreational and leisure programs for the community in cooperation with the City of Spring Hill and Unified School District 230.

Who We Are

The overhead and administration of the Spring Hill Recreation Commission is funded by tax dollars paid by property owners within the Spring Hill School District. This area encompasses portions of Johnson and Miami counties in northeast Kansas. Programs are supported by individual registrations, user fees and corporate sponsorship.

The commission is governed by a 5 member volunteer board. Two are appointed by the City of Spring Hill, 2 are appointed by the Spring Hill School District and 1 serves at large. They meet on a monthly basis to oversee the commission's operations and staff. A representative from the school board and city council serve as non-voting members.

Board Meetings

Board meetings are every month on the 2nd Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Spring Hill Civic Center.

Citizen Participation

The Commission shall allow citizen requests to appear on the meeting agenda; however, the following guidelines shall be followed:

  • The Chairperson may, in his or her sole discretion, limit a citizen's presentation to 5 minutes in length.
  • Citizens should complete an agenda request and submit the same to the Director 7 calendar days before the respective commission meeting, and furnish all supporting materials in advance, or such citizen may be denied the opportunity to speak at the discretion of the chairperson.
  • The Commission may add an agenda item allowing citizens to raise questions, issues, or make comment on items that are not already on the current meeting's agenda.
