The purpose of the Parks, Recreation & Seniors Advisory Committee (PRSAC) is to advise Township management and make recommendations relative to the needs of residents regarding Township sponsored parks, recreation and senior services . Members of this committee also play a pivotal role in the development of the Recreation Master Plan every 5 years.

The PRSAC is comprised of at least 5 and no more than 15 members. The PR&S Director, Township Supervisor and 1 Township Board member will serve as ex-officio members. The Independence Township Board of Trustees appoints all members for 3-year terms upon the recommendation of the PRSAC with the exception of the elected official ex-officio members whose terms will extend through the duration of their term as an elected official. Members must be residents of Independence Township, the City of the Village of Clarkston, or Springfield Township. Every attempt will be made to solicit members that represent the community through age, gender, and race. 

The Parks, Recreation & Seniors Advisory Committee meets at 6:30 p.m. at Township Hall once per each odd month: January, March, May, July, September, and November, or on an as needed basis.
