Senior Advisory Committee

The Senior Advisory Committee was established by the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District  to counsel and assist the District with the planning and communication of senior services at the new Estes Valley Community Center (EVCC).

In August 2016, the Town of Estes Park and the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District entered an intergovernmental agreement to transfer senior services from the Town to EVRPD upon the opening of the Estes Valley Community Center, which is anticipated to be January 2018. The agreement included the establishment of a Senior Advisory Committee.

Roles of the Senior Advisory Committee

  • Advise EVRPD staff about the delivery of various senior recreation and lifelong learning opportunities that provide recreational, social, educational, and health services to senior participants of the EVCC.
  • Provide recommendations to EVRPD staff about EVCC policies.
  • Participate in advocacy activities for senior adults and collaborate as appropriate with agencies that serve senior adults in the Estes Valley.
  • Appoint appropriate subcommittees as necessary to further the work of the Center’s programs and efforts of the Committee.
  • Identify problems of service and recommend appropriate solutions.
  • Be a channel of communication between staff, senior participants and the senior community.
  • Provide feedback to staff on the assessment of current and future needs of the senior community for program planning.

 Committee Members

The Committee is organized and administered by a total of five voting members and three non-voting liaisons appointed by the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District Board of Directors, each to three-year terms.
