Residents may offer input on 16 various advisory groups
With many positions to become vacant when current terms expire in December, the Beaverton City Council is encouraging residents to apply for the citys boards and commissions.
Beavertons 16 boards and commissions provide input on a variety of issues affecting the city and allow residents to become more involved. Board and commission members advise policy makers about issues such as traffic, city planning, the library, the arts and city visioning.
Most boards and commissions require a commitment of only a few hours each month.
Our boards and commissions allow residents to use their unique perspectives and expertise to improve our community, said Mayor Denny Doyle. I encourage anyone with an interest in improving their city to apply.
Applications are now being accepted for the following: Beaverton Arts Commission Board, Bicycle Advisory Committee, Board of Construction Appeals, Budget Committee, Citizens with Disabilities Advisory Committee, Beaverton Committee for Community Involvement, Diversity Advisory Board, Human Rights Advisory Commission, Library Advisory Board, Planning Commission, Senior Citizens Advisory Committee, Sister Cities Advisory Board, Social Services Funding Committee, Traffic Commission, Urban Renewal Advisory Committee and Visioning Advisory Committee.
Online applications are due by Friday, Oct. 3, at 4:30 p.m. City Council will appoint members to terms from one to three years that begin in January 2015.
