Ghose said he’s seeking a diverse group of citizens who are parks and recreation advocates and is hoping to fill out the commission with at least one college or high school student. The office of Mayor Greg Fischer is responsible for final recommendations on commission members.

There are no minimum requirements on who may serve, but appointments are pending a background check.
