Parks Commission

The five members of the Montpelier Parks Commission are your voice in City parks. We guide policy and help set the agenda for the staff of the Montpelier Parks Department. Each Parks Commissioner is elected at Town Meeting Day to staggered five-year terms:

  • Bryan Pfeiffer, Chairman
    (Term expires 2019)
  • Carolyn Grodinsky
    (Term expires 2020)
  • Bill Johnson
    (Term expires 2018)
  • Kip Roberts
    (resigned effective April 19, 2016)
  • Sarah Swenson
    (Term expires 2021)

Regular Meetings


The Parks Commission meets on the third Tuesday of the month in the conference room of the Montpelier Police Station. (If you don't find us there, check the Memorial Room at City Hall next door). The public is welcome to attend Parks Commission meetings. If you have an item for our agenda, contact our chairman, Bryan Pfeiffer. You'll find agendas and meetings minutes at the City's Agenda Center (scroll down for the Parks Commission).

Announcements – Posted April 26, 2016

The Parks Commission intends to appoint a replacement for Kip Roberts, who resigned in April of 2016. The appointee would fill out the remainder of Kip's term, which ends in March of 2017. Interested candidates should send an application letter (with interests and qualifications) to Parks Commission Chairman Bryan Pfeiffer no later than May 10, 2016. The Parks Commission will appoint Kip's replacement at its May 17 meeting.
