City of Glendale - Boards and Commissions

Community participation is a cornerstone to the city of Glendale’s success. From volunteerism to providing valuable feedback to our elected officials and city leaders, our residents play an essential role in shaping our city. Key components to our reputation of devoted citizen involvement are the city’s Boards and Commissions, which assist the City Council in making important policy decisions that impact our community. These citizen advisory groups research, study and discuss specific issues with both short- and long-term implications, and then forward their recommendations to the City Council.

Citizen involvement and input is essential to the success of local government. The city encourages you to consider submitting an application for appointment to one of Glendale’s 17 boards and commissions. The time commitment for each of the boards and commissions varies, but most meet at least once a month for several hours. Preparation for meetings and special meetings sometimes require an additional time commitment.

Boards and Commission members must be Glendale Residents. A three-hour basic training program is required for those who have expressed a desire to serve and who have completed an application. Once training is completed, we will be able to consider your application as vacancies occur.

Once appointed, attendance at all regularly scheduled meetings is critical. The Council will appoint a replacement for those members who are absent for two consecutive regular meetings or who miss three regularly scheduled meetings in a calendar year.

Help Shape Your City

For additional information, meeting locations and how you can become involved, please call (623) 930-2249 or stop by the Council Office located in City Hall on the fourth floor, 5850 West Glendale Avenue to pick up an application.
