Citizen participation on City of Corvallis boards and commissions serves two important purposes:
Citizens are directly involved in their local government and can positively impact the future of their community.
The City Council receives timely input and information regarding issues and potential impacts on citizens.
The various boards and commissions serve in an advisory capacity to the City Council within their respective areas of municipal policy. Members are unpaid volunteers who devote countless hours of their time to these community activities. Anyone living in Corvallis, employed or self-employed full-time in Corvallis, or residing within Corvallis' Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) may serve on these advisory boards and commissions with the exception of the Planning Commission and Historic Preservation Commission. Members are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. Planning Commission and Historic Preservation Commission members are selected by the full City Council. Typically, each term of office runs for three years; no individual member may serve more than three consecutive terms or nine years.
For the 2017-18 Council Session, Mayor Traber appointed all the Councilors to various boards and commissions. I was appointed to 5 boards as Councilor; I am automatically part of the Budget Commission; I am also the liaison for the Community Policing Advisory Board for the Police Department; and an existing member of the South Corvallis Community Initiative; totally 8 boards/commissions I am apart of this Council Session.
The following pages outline a description of each board/commission's purpose, the current serving members, and also I will review each meeting I attend and update the website regularly with news and priorities of each board/commission.
