Boards & Commissions

Members of Westminster’s numerous boards and commissions act as advisers to City Council on a variety of subjects, including building and municipal codes, elections, environmental issues, human services funding, open space, parks and recreation, planning, transportation, and other important city topics.

Eligibility requirements to serve on a board or commission include:

  • must be a registered elector of the city
  • must have been a resident of the city  for at least one year
  • must pass a background check
  • must meet specific board/commission eligibility requirements, if necessary

Any resident is eligible to join a board or commission, and interested citizens are encouraged to apply when there are openings.


  • These are volunteer positions, not full-time positions.
  • These volunteer positions are not paid.
  • The time commitment depends on the specific Board or Commission you are interested in. Some Boards meet once or twice a month; some only meet a few times a year.
