Boards and Commissions

A great way to get involved and help your community is to volunteer your time and skills by serving on one of our citizen advisory bodies.

Serving on one of the City commissions, boards or committees can be a fascinating and rewarding experience. These advisory bodies are responsible for formulating new ideas, gathering information, hearing and receiving public comments, analyzing complex issues, and making recommendations for specific projects and policies.

The work can be challenging, as issues are often more complex than anticipated, public opinion can be sharply divided, some issues may overlap into a different area, and sometimes the province of one body may also be the territory of another. The work isn’t always easy, but it makes a positive difference by contributing to our community in a meaningful way.

 
The City greatly values the effort and time commitment made by our volunteers.  

To apply to serve on a board or commission:

Applications for current and upcoming openings are due by 5 p.m. on December 2, 2016.
