Welcome to the ORC

Recreation commissions were created by Kansas State Statute. The Ottawa Recreation Commission (ORC) was established in 1947. We are partially funded through property taxes levied by USD 290 and specifically dedicated by law for the recreation commission. ORC provides essential quality of life services in the form of recreation programs for the community. We partner with the City of Ottawa and USD 290 to operate our programs using properties they own.

The Commission is governed by a five member policy setting board. Our board is comprised of two appointees from the City of Ottawa, two from USD 290 and one at-large position appointed by the four previously appointed members. Commissioners, by law, are not paid and donate their time.

Mission Statement

The purpose of Ottawa Recreation Commission is to improve and maintain the mental and physical health, happiness, and well being of the citizens of USD 290 taxing district, through a well planned program of organized, constructive leisure activities.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to get our community active and involved in balanced recreation programs and services.
