Applying for Advisory Commissions

Recruitment for Advisory Commissions takes place in the fall each year. Residents appointed to Advisory Commissions serve on a volunteer basis. The term is for three years, in most instances. There are up to two openings on the Parks and Natural Resources and Planning Commissions for 11th- and 12-grade high school students who are Woodbury residents. The term length for students is one year.

All applicants will be interviewed by the City Council on Saturday, November 6, for terms beginning in January 2022. Criteria used by the City Council to evaluate candidates include personal and professional experience which may relate to the subject areas of the board or commission; knowledge of the community; knowledge of city government process; contribution to creating or maintaining a diversity of membership with respect to geographic location, gender or race; experience from similar appointments.
