Fox Valley Park District

Board of Commissioners

101 W. Illinois Ave., Aurora, Illinois ● 630-897-0516 ● Directions

The Fox Valley Park District is governed by a seven-member Board of Commissioners, which approves all policy and financial decisions, and also appoints the Executive Director, along with the Park District attorney and auditors.

In 2017 – for the first time in the Park District’s 70-year history – residents took to the voting booth to elect seven commissioners from three two-member districts, and one commissioner at large. View map of representative districts. Previously, all board members were appointed by the Kane County Board chairman.

By lottery, four commissioners were selected to serve four-year terms, with three commissioners to serve a two-year term with four-year terms thereafter, if re-elected. Elections for Fox Valley Park District commissioners will be held on the first Tuesday in April of odd-numbered years, beginning in 2019, as part of the consolidated general election.
