Boards, Commissions and Committees

Opportunities to Serve

Takoma Park residents have many opportunities to be involved in their government. Serving on a City board, commission, committee or task force is one way to be involved and provide a service to the community. Unless noted otherwise, these groups are advisory to the City Council and members are appointed by the Council. Some have specific roles related to conducting hearings or carrying out certain activities.

Most of the boards, commissions and committees require the members be residents of Takoma Park. Check the page for each to see membership requirements and to find out the specifics of each group’s mandate.

Feel free to sit in on a meeting or two before applying to see if it is a good fit for your interests and skills. Meetings are open to the public unless noted otherwise. See the calendar for scheduled meetings.

To apply for appointment, submit an application form along with a resume or statement of qualifications to the City Clerk (clerk@takomaparkmd.gov)

Open Meetings

All meetings of the City Council and Council-appointed boards, committees, commissions, and task forces are open to the public unless noted otherwise. All are subject to the Maryland Open Meetings Act.

Notice of meetings is provided on the City Calendar and on the City Council rolling agenda.
