Committees are a great way to get involved with City government. The City has a number of boards, committees, commissions or advisory groups that make recommendations to City Council or City administrative staff.
A number of these opportunities are listed below. Some are ongoing and established by law. Others are ad hoc, specific to a project and short-term.
An effective Citizen Committee is comprised of individuals who have skills appropriate to the needs of the particular group. Appointed volunteers are considered public officials. Unless explicitly authorized by statute, ordinance, or other formal action of the City Council, the authority of the Citizen Committee is limited to making recommendations to the City Council.
Each group is staffed by a City of Bend employee liaison who will provide necessary administrative staff support.
Use the following application to apply for all committees:
City of Bend Accessibility Advisory Committee (COBAAC) - Applications will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 14, 2018.
Planning Commission - Application will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 4, 2019
Council members are assigned as liaison to the Citizen Committees or other bodies that advise the Council.
A chair and vice-chair will be elected by motion annually at the first meeting in each calendar year. All meetings shall be subject to the requirements of Oregon Public Meeting Law. A majority of the voting members shall constitute a quorum for the conduct of business and the concurrence of a majority of those members present and voting shall be required to decide any matter. These meetings are an opportunity for public involvement in the discussion of issues relating to that particular board, committee, or commission.
Except for the Budget Committee, each Citizen Committee shall report on its activities at least annually.
