Do you have ideas that can help the Mesa City Council make decisions on major projects? Are you an engineer or planner interested in transportation? Are you interested in the cultural attractions in your community? If so, apply to be a member of one of our advisory boards and committees. Expertise from the community is needed for a host of positions opening up on boards such as transportation, museum and cultural and historic preservation, to name a few.
Mesa residents are invited to participate in the process of City of Mesa government by serving on one of the city's 25 citizen advisory boards and committees. Through this service, civic-minded citizens become involved in their local government and make recommendations to the Mesa City Council. The city, in turn, benefits from the knowledge, experience and expertise of citizens.
Each June, as board and committee members end their terms, new members are needed to take their places. For a complete list of advisory board and committee openings along with meeting information and application forms go to www.mesaaz.gov/government/advisory. If you are interested in serving and have questions about a specific board or committee, contact Kathy Macdonald at (480) 644-3002 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prospective board and committee members must complete an application form, which can be filled out and e-mailed online or printed and mailed. Mail completed forms to the Mayor's Office, P.O. Box 1466, Mesa, Ariz. 85211, or fax them to (480) 644-2175. The application deadline is June 1. All appointments to the boards are recommended by the mayor and approved by the city council.
