The Parks and Recreation Commission is made up of three members of the community, appointed by the Mayor. The purpose of the Commission is to set policies and advise the Department Head, Mayor, and City Council on needed parks and recreation programs; plan, acquire, and develop recreation facilities, parks, and open space areas to meet current and future needs as the city grows.
The Historical Commission was established to preserve and develop the historical and archeological assets of the city. The Commission maintains an inventory of buildings, areas, and sites of architectural and/or historical importance in Holyoke. It collects reference information and can assist those seeking National Register Nominations for their buildings or neighborhoods.
