The Stage Fort Park Advisory Committee was created in 2014 by City Council to oversee the ownership, operation, and maintenance of Stage Fort Park so that its full recreational utilization can be realized and its integrity as a natural resource for the entire community can be fully protected.
The Stage Fort Park Advisory Committee shall consist of up to nine members, one of whom shall be the DPW Director or his designee and one of whom shall be a City Councilor appointed by the Council President. The remaining members shall be residents of the City who shall be appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Council under the City Charter to a term of three years. One of the members shall be a resident of the neighborhood abutting the park and two of the members shall be at-large residents of the City. The remaining members shall represent the interests of the Gloucester Rotary Club, Gloucester Dog Park, Gloucester Little League, the Friends of Stage Fort Park, and of recreation, gardening, and landscaping.
