Parks & Recreation Advisory Commission (PRAC) is a panel of county citizens who will act as a liaison between the public, the Board of Supervisors and the County Administration to advise on development, funding, programming, land acquisition, and maintenance related to Parks and Recreation activities and facilities. 


The Commission is composed of five (5) members appointed by the Powhatan County Board of Supervisors and 3 ex-officio, non-votes members, including one representative from the Powhatan County Schools, one teen representative selected by the Powhatan County Schools, and one representative from the Powhatan Parks and Recreation Department. All appointed members must be residents of Powhatan County.  Appointed members shall serve a two-year term, or until a successor is appointed. Ex-officio members shall serve until a replacement is named or the incumbent vacates the seat due to absenteeism as noted in the PRAC bylaws.
