By serving on a City commission, you are helping plan the future of Davis. Commissions serve as a conduit for citizen input – a way of gathering, analyzing and recommending options to the City Council. Commissions also provide an important avenue for determining the community’s feelings about issues and extending the reach of the democratic process.

Applications may be picked up at the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall, 23 Russell Boulevard during regular business hours, or downloaded at http://city-managers-office.cityofdavis.org/city-clerk/apply-to-serve-on-a-city-commission. Individuals interested in applying to the Planning Commission must also fill out the supplemental Planning Commissioner Questionnaire. Please be aware that all applications and accompanying documents are considered public information and may be disclosed/released pursuant to the California Public Records Act.

In addition to the application form, commission applicants will participate in a 10-minute private interview with the Council subcommittee and City staff. Applications are tentatively scheduled to be submitted to City Council for appointment beginning September 2014.

Application deadline: Wednesday August 20, 2014
