Beginning with its July 5, 2016 meeting, the East Bay Regional Park District Board of Directors will begin its meetings at 1 p.m., instead of 2 p.m. Closed session will begin at 11:30 a.m., instead of 12:30 p.m.
The changes were approved unanimously at the Board’s May 17 meeting, as a way to increase efficiency.
The 7-member Board meets the first and third Tuesdays of every month at District headquarters, 2950 Peralta Oaks Court, Oakland. Committee meeting times remain unchanged.
