Represent the Business Community on City of Boulder Boards and Commissions
Have you considered a deeper level of community engagement or civic participation? The Boulder Chamber encourages you to apply for one of the City of Boulder's Boards and Commissions. It is important to ensure that the business voice is heard in city policy analysis, and boards and commissions provide the vehicle for strategic engagement on some of the city’s most pressing issues. From land use planning to the new marijuana advisory board, your participation could impact policies that influence Boulder’s economic vitality and business environment.
Boulder is filling 32 vacant seats on 20 boards that examine issues of community concern and provide guidance to the City Council. Community members can apply for up to three boards or commissions. Many positions are open to any individual, but a few have more specific criteria.
One new board in 2020 is the Marijuana Advisory/ Licensing Board. Its primary function will be to advise City Council on policy related marijuana matters. Following a six-month to two-year period from its first meeting in 2020, the Board’s responsibilities will also include making determinations on marijuana license applications on behalf of the City of Boulder.
Board and commission members must reside in Boulder and be at least 18. All applications must be submitted electronically and are due by Feb 14. Click here for more information or contact the City Clerk’s office at (303) 441-4222.
