The Portage Area Joint Recreation Commission was created by the Borough of Portage, Portage Township and the Portage Area School District on April 9, 1991.  The Borough of Portage adopted the Commission by Ordinance 2-1991. 
 
The Joint Commission consists of seven members serving a three year term.  Three members are from Portage Borough, three members from Portage Township, and one member from Portage Area School District.  On April 6th, 2009, Portage Borough Council, Portage Township, and the Portage Area School District adopted an intergovernmental agreement to increase the board to nine members.  The Borough Ordinance 2-1991 was amended by Ordinance 3-2009, 4/6/2009. 
 
The Joint Commissions main purpose is to develop a plan for acquisition, development and operation of regional recreation areas and facilities to review the nature and scope of existing recreational facilities and activities in the Portage Area.  The Crichton McCormick Memorial Park is the major recreational facility serving the Portage Area.
