Have a voice in local government. Join a board or commission today.

They study information within the board’s area of expertise —such as local development, water, public safety, transportation or park and recreation issues — and provide recommendations to Town Council and staff. The groups take public comments and help reflect the community’s voice.

The annual board and commission recruitment period is underway, and those interested in serving are encouraged to apply. Applications are available at Submit applications to the Town Manager’s Office, 100 N. Wilcox St., or by email to Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Monday, April 24.

  • Parks and Recreation Commission (three vacancies)
  • Planning Commission (four vacancies)
  • Public Art Commission (five vacancies)
  • Public Safety Commission (three vacancies)
  • Public Works Commission (four vacancies)

Candidates will be interviewed on or about May 9 by a team that includes the Councilmember who is the liaison to the board or commission, Town staff and a current member of the board or commission. Recommendations for appointments are made to Town Council for formal approval, and terms begin June 1.
