Parks, recreation and beautification are three words that, though clearly intertwined, can easily branch off into a variety of tangents that can be difficult for one committee to cover. South Padre Island Parks, Recreation and Beautification Committee Chairman Jodi Hughes recently questioned the focus of the committee and brought the issue up for discussion at Wednesday morning’s monthly meeting.
JoAnn Evans, who recently stepped down from her eight-year run with City Council, came to the meeting to share her perspective on the original mission of the committee and where the focus should lie. She shed light on two important issues that were the reasons for the creation of the committee – the first being quality of life for the community, including residents as well as visitors.
