The board, which will be comprised of four members, will be appointed by the mayor based on their interest and knowledge of parks and recreation. According to the ordinance, one member will serve for one year, one for two years, one for three years, and another for four years. As a term expires, each new appointment will be made for four-year terms.

Both a president and vice president will be elected at the board's first meeting.
