Pleasanton city officials are looking for volunteers interested in serving the community on one of the city commissions and committees that oversee specific topic areas and make recommendations to the City Council.
Seats are available on seven groups, including positions on the Planning Commission (one seat), Human Services Commission (two regular seats and one youth seat), Housing Commission (two seats), Committee on Energy and the Environment (two seats) and Bicycle, Pedestrian and Trails Committee (one seat).
The city is also recruiting for various positions on the Youth Commission as well as representatives from commercial real estate development, commercial real estate broker and financial services for the Economic Vitality Committee.
Terms vary for each of the commissions and committees, but they are typically four-year terms with a two-term maximum. Applicants should look at the individual commission or committee for which they are applying to get specific details.
All applicants must live within the Pleasanton city limits.
Applications are due March 22 at 5 p.m. Mayor Jerry Thorne will interview candidates on March 27 and March 29. The mayor will make recommendations for all available posts, and his colleagues on the City Council will be asked to ratify Thorne's list, typically on the consent calendar.
For more information, contact the City Clerk's Office at 931-5027. Applications are available online on the city website.
