DeTurk Round Barn Neighborhood Committee Volunteer Needed. The conditional use permit for DeTurk Round Barn requires the Recreation & Parks Department to hold quarterly meetings with neighborhood representatives.  These meetings are specific to the operation of the DeTurk Round Barn and getting feedback about how things are going.  Ideally there should be three representatives for this neighborhood committee.  Allen Thomas and Deborah Crippen have been representing the neighborhood for years and we’ve appreciated their input and suggestions.  Heading into 2018 we’d like to recruit an additional member for the committee. If interested contact:  Mickey Remy Recreation Coordinator Recreation & Parks Department (707) 543-3285
