Serving on a Redwood City Board, Commission or Committee is an important way to offer new perspectives and ideas, and contribute to the City’s discussions and decisions on a variety of substantial matters. Members of these committees serve an essential function in helping to manage the significant issues our community faces – and being appointed requires a commitment to carrying out the responsibilities of serving. Applicants’ ability to build consensus, their willingness to offer thoughtful, productive recommendations, and their motivation to be prepared, informed, and engaged in their committee’s work are all critical factors contributing to being appointed.
Requirements are that applicants must be residents and electors of incorporated Redwood City, have a strong interest in civic involvement and must be 18 years of age or older. Selected applicants will be invited for oral interviews.
