City of Glendale - Boards and Commissions - Help Shape Your City

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 19 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.

Once appointed, a basic training program will be provided. Attendance at all regularly
scheduled board or commission 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

Board and Commission members must be Glendale Residents. The Mayor and City Council will review applications and appoint members. Most terms are two years. Applications will be kept on file for two years. To apply, click the button below. Please complete all required fields. After you have completed the application, you will have the option of printing a copy of the application.


For additional information, meeting locations and how you can become involved, please call the City Clerk’s Office at (623) 930-2252.
