Longtime American Youth Soccer Organization coach and referee Chuck Huffer is eager to kick off his first term as chair of the Conejo Recreation and Park District’s board of directors.
Huffer was selected chair by his fellow board members at their Dec. 17 meeting. The term lasts one year.
“I’m excited about doing this. I’ve been on the board now for 3 ½ years and had the chance to work with some really fine board members,” said Huffer, who takes over for departing chair Ed Jones.
A priority under his chairmanship will be the continued progress of Sapwi Trails, Huffer said.
Although the 145-acre park in the Lang Ranch area isn’t expected to fully open until 2018, a disc golf course and an area for flying motorless glider planes is planned to be in operation sometime in 2016.
In November the CRPD approved a contract amendment with San Luis Obispo-based RRM Design Group to begin drawing up construction plans for the parcel of land that’s bordered by Erbes Road, Avenida de Los Arboles and Westlake Boulevard. Once the park is completed it will include miles of multi use trails, a track for mountain bikes and a playground area.
