    Senior Commission

    The Madeira Senior Commission works to improve the quality of life of area seniors through activities such as disseminating information, understanding aging-in-place issues, and exploring housing alternatives. We also serve as a sounding board for Madeira seniors and as an advisory board to city council.  

    Appointments are made by City Council. Members are appointed for a two year term.  You do not have to be a “senior” to be a member!  Any resident who is interested in improving senior services and issues in our community is eligible to be appointed.  The Senior Commission meets once a month at 6 PM on the third Monday of each month. 

    Parks and Recreation Board    

    The primary function of the Parks and Recreation Board is to plan and execute community-wide recreational events such as the Easter Egg Scramble, Independence Day parade, Community Street Dance, and various plays, concerts, parties and classes. The Parks and Recreation Board also prepare and submit new plans, programs and recommendations relative to public recreation and public parks in the city. Occasionally, the board will make studies upon its own initiative or at the request of City Council and/or at the request of the Parks and Recreation Committee of Council.

     The Parks and Recreation Board consists of no more than 15 voting members. All of the members shall be appointed by City Council. All members of the Parks and Recreation Board are appointed for two year staggered terms with no term limits.  The available term is from 1/1/18 to 12/31/19.  The Board meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month.


    To help serve residents of the City and to provide guidance to the Administration and Council, several boards and commissions have been established, as outlined in the City’s Charter and Code of Ordinances. All positions to these boards and commissions are volunteer and are made via appointment by City Council. Click below to learn more about each:
