Calling all movers and shakers. Are you ready to become an even more engaged citizen? Do you wish you knew more about the goings-on in our city, before they happen? You can make your voice heard — by serving as a volunteer member on one of the City’s 29 (yes, 29) boards and commissions.

As a board member, you can weigh in on topics like appearance or planning, advise on changes to our local parks and greenway system, or contribute to historic development and preservation of cemeteries.

Members are nominated and appointed by the City Council. To be considered, you must submit an interest form to the board or commission of your choosing (example here). Candidates must receive five favorable votes from City Council members in order to be approved for a board or commission member position.
