Boards & Commissions
The City of Columbia Heights encourages citizens to share their talents and perspectives by serving on a board or commission. Serving on a board or commission is a great way to become actively involved in city government and influence the policies, actions and progress of our community. Furthermore, citizen involvement and participation is vital to the progress of the City and improves the quality and responsiveness of public decision-making.
Members of boards and commissions are volunteer residents appointed by the City Council, except for the Charter Commission members who are appointed by the chief judge of the Judicial District. Expiring Board and Commission terms are reviewed annually in the spring.
