Boards and Commissions

Join a board or commission, make a difference in your city

A great way to get involved and help your community is to volunteer your time and skills by serving on one of our boards or commissions.

Serving on one of the City commissions, boards or committees can be a fascinating and rewarding experience. These advisory groups 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 and complex as public opinion can be sharply divided and some issues and groups may overlap. 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. View our Board and Commission Handbook (PDF).
