Recreation Committee Mission Statement

The Recreation Commission is committed to providing opportunities and experiences that enhance the quality of life for residents of all ages in Amenia. We attempt to accomplish this through a diversity of recreational, social and educational programs, services, events and facilities that meet both the individual and community needs.

The Amenia Recreation Commission was formed on May 3, 2005. It is made up of volunteers, appointed by the Town Board, who have a desire to help sustain and improve all recreational offerings. The Commission governs all Town Recreation activities, including but not limited to:

  • Program Administration (Maintenance, Creation or Elimination)
  • Planning
    • Rec Master Plan
  • Publicity (Flyers, TV, Internet, Newspaper, Schools, etc.)
  • Questions, Suggestions and Concerns

To find out about upcoming Commission meetings check the Town Calendar. For your convenience minutes from previous meetings are posted on this website.

Recreation Liaison

One or more members of the Town Board are always designated as the Recreation Liaisons. This was done to streamline communications between the Recreation Commission and the Town Board.

Recreation Department

This department consists of paid employees, hired by the Town Board, who work together with the Recreation Commission in order to help them fulfill their mission.

Volunteers

Amenia Recreation has always been fortunate to have a very dedicated group of volunteers. If enough volunteers are not available costs rise, programs are negatively impacted or can sometimes be dropped completely. If you have an interest in a particular program (even if it doesn’t exist), have some time and are willing to help contact any member of the Recreation Administration. Your help is always needed and appreciated. Thanks!
