Riverside looks to fill boards and commissions

By on October 17, 2019

Riverside is asking residents to sign up for the boards and commissions that help shape city policies.

The city’s 15 boards and commissions offer advice on policy decisions for the city, including general plan updates, building design, signs, parks and recreation, trees, traffic regulations, public utilities, ethics, street maintenance and the city budget, according to a statement on the city’s website.

Boards and Commissions include the Commission on Aging, Budget Engagement Commission, Airport Commission, Community Police Review Commission, Cultural Heritage Board, Commission on Disabilities, Board of Ethics, Human Relations Commission, Human Resources Board, Board of Library Trustees, Metropolitan Museum Board, Park and Recreation Commission, Planning Commission, Board of Public Utilities, and Transportation Board.

“The mayor and city council members value the input from our community volunteers,” City Clerk Colleen J. Nicol said in the statement. “By serving as a member of one of the Boards and Commissions, residents will have an opportunity to make decisions that affect their neighborhoods and city.”

Members serve four-year terms and are eligible to be reappointed for another four-year term. Applications will be accepted through Nov. 8.
