For Immediate Release

Involved, Engaged, Informed Community Members Invited to Apply for Two Redwood City Advisory Committees

Redwood City, CA - August 1, 2012 - The City of Redwood City is offering a great opportunity for residents to serve their community. Seats on two of the City’s advisory committees are available for appointment, and residents with a strong desire and willingness to work diligently on behalf of the community are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is 5 pm, Tuesday, August 21, 2012. Applications are available online at, or may be requested by calling 650-780-7220.

The Historic Resources Advisory Committee has available one seat which expires on July 31, 2014, and two seats which expire July 31, 2015. The Architectural Advisory Committee has two seats available, which both expire on May 31, 2016. Appointments to these two committees will be made by the Planning Commission (which is appointed by the City Council). Non-Redwood City residents may be eligible for certain seats.

Serving on one of these committees is an important way to offer new perspectives and ideas, and contribute to the City’s discussions and decisions on a variety of substantial matters. Members of these committees serve an essential function in helping to manage the significant issues our community faces - and being appointed requires a commitment to carrying out the responsibilities of serving. Applicants’ ability to build consensus, their willingness to offer thoughtful, productive recommendations, and their motivation to be prepared, informed, and engaged in their board’s work are all critical factors contributing to being appointed to a committee.

Typical basic requirements are that applicants must have a strong interest in civic involvement, must be 18 years of age or older, and must be a registered voter. More information on the specific boards, commissions, and committees for which the City is recruiting can be found online at
