Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Commission

Serving the Community Since 1992

The Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Commission (PROS) was formed in 1992 as a volunteer community organization to identify parks, recreation and open space needs in Cambria. It advises the CCSD Board of Directors on policy issues. In 1994, a Master Plan was developed establishing the community's priorities for parks, recreation and open space in Cambria. PROS has participated in the acquisition and management planning process for the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve and other key projects.

Chairperson Steve Kniffen, Vice Chairperson Adolph Atencio, Kermit Johansson, Teri Lord and Joyce Renshaw.
