APPLICATIONS FOR CITY BOARDS ARE OPEN UNTIL 12/31/20
One of the most common questions we receive is how the public can get more involved with local government? The perfect place to engage with local government is through Lubbock’s many city boards. What’s better is that boards have a rolling application process. Even if you are not selected to serve the next cycle, your resume stays valid moving forward, and you could be called to serve in a year or two.
These control many of the functions throughout Lubbock such as parks, zoning, even how to deal with abandoned cars! Why are city boards perfect to get involved in for the average citizen?
- Low Time Commitment: Many boards only meet once a month or quarterly.
- Availability To Citizens: There is a general lack of interest in applying to these boards, the city also makes the schedule hard to follow so they can appoint people when there are not any applications.
- Minimal Requirements: Some boards reserve seats for individuals with specific expertise. For other boards, like Parks or Keep Lubbock Beautiful, no previous experience is required.
