The Westmoreland County Citizens Advisory Board is a group of nineteen volunteers formed to advise the growth and development of the County Parks and Recreational Programs.

We strive to engender the widespread appreciation and enjoyment of Westmoreland County's natural resources through its recreational facilities and programming.

We intend to fulfill our mission by:
