Boards & Commissions FAQs

Did you know that you can influence the priorities and development of the City’s park system?  Or that you can help shape the City’s budget and priorities? There’s also a way to directly impact how the City looks and what future development might include. These tasks are accomplished by our various volunteer committees and boards.

The City has a Budget Committee, Parks Commission, Planning Commission, and an Urban Renewal Board. Each one has at least one opening that you can apply to be on. You don’t have to have any specific experience; you just need to have a passion for the community and a desire to learn.

The Parks Commission serves as advisors to the City Council on the development,operation, and maintenance of city park facilities. The Commission meets on an as needed basis.
