A week or so ago, the City put out a press release detailing the current openings on City boards and commissions. Applications are being accepted through the end of this month for the Arts and Culture Commission, Building Code Board of Appeals, Design Advisory Board, Environmental Quality Commission, Grace Whittier Fund Committee, Heritage Preservation Commission, Human Rights Commission, Library Board, Park Board, and Planning Commission/Zoning Board of Appeals.
From the release:
Over 100 citizen members annually provide valuable leadership to the City through their participation on these groups and special study committees. As the titles of the groups suggest, the members participate in advisory, regulatory, governance and oversight activities in a wide variety of fields. The City Council is committed to appointing citizens who represent diverse qualifications and viewpoints and values the knowledge, collective experience and efforts of these groups.

Believe me, the city needs help! If you have professional expertise or a passion for any of these issues, I’d encourage you to get more info and then toss your hat in the ring. Application forms are available at the Administration office at City Hall (645-8833) or online at the City website.
See you at City Hall!
