Park Board staff to determine how long meetings last

The Vancouver Park Board has unanimously passed a motion that calls for staff to recommend changes to a bylaw that would limit how long meetings can go.
 
NPA Commissioner Melissa De Genova put the motion forward. She’d like meetings to be over by 10 p-m.
 
She says other Commissioners feel that 10 may not be the right time, “This concerns me because I’ve done the research and to leave our Park Board Office any later than 10, people can’t safely get home necessarily using active forms of transportation.”

De Genova says there is no date for staff to come back with recommendations.
 
The motion was prompted by a marathon meeting last month that went until after 3:00 in the morning.
