City of Boulder Recruiting Interested Community Members to Serve on Boards and Commissions; Deadline Is Feb. 14
Wanting to make a difference in your community? Tired of watching city staff and council members work on key projects from the sidelines? Have expertise you could share?
The City of Boulder is now recruiting interested individuals to fill 32 vacant seats on 20 boards and commissions that examine issues of community concern and provide guidance to City Council. Openings available on boards that focus on public art, the environment, marijuana policy and more.
Boulder community members may apply for up to three boards or commissions. A list of all the vacancies and the applications for each are available at https://bouldercolorado.gov/boards-commissions/boards-commissions. Many positions are open to all community members, but a few have more specific criteria.
New in 2020 is the Marijuana Advisory/Licensing Board (MALB). Initially, MALB’s primary function will be to advise City Council on policy-related marijuana matters. Following a six-month to two-year period from the board’s first meeting in 2020, the Board’s responsibilities will also include making determinations on marijuana license applications on behalf of the city of Boulder.
MALB will consist of seven community members appointed by City Council. Two members shall be marijuana business owners or representatives of such owners, two members shall have a connection to the health or education field, and the remaining members shall be at-large.
Members must reside in the city and be at least 21 years old. Appointments will range from one to five years. Up to two ex officio, non-voting members may be appointed by City Council at their discretion.
The time commitment is estimated to be one meeting each month that is expected to be approximately four hours in length, plus eight hours of meeting prep time each month.
All applications must be submitted electronically. Applications are due by 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 14.
