Redwood City is seeking members for its Board, Commission or Committee which is appointed by the City Council, as there are openings that may be filled by residents who want to serve their city and improve the community.

This opportunity allows residents to join with other volunteer members to shape policy and service initiatives that affect the community. Public participation is crucial to the City's decision-making process, and these appointed advisory bodies are an important and valuable part of City government. 

By advising the City Council and staff, bringing new ideas to the table and representing all the diverse elements of the community, members of Boards, Commissions and Committees help the City Council make the best and most informed decisions possible for the benefit of the entire Redwood City community.
