Boards, Commissions and Committees

Anyone may speak and express a point of view at the meetings of the City's boards and committees during the Public Input sections outlined in a meeting's agenda. If you're unsure when that occurs, check with the appropriate staff member associated with that board or committee and ask for assistance before the meeting begins, or contact the City Clerk's Office for details any other time.

Serving on a Board, Commission or Committee

The City of Las Cruces' Boards, Commissions and Committees are comprised of concerned citizens who volunteer their time, knowledge, and expertise to make a difference in their community. Duties of the boards, commissions or committees may include serving in an advisory capacity to the City Council, examining in-depth issues such as park development and planning and zoning, or making funding recommendations to City Council. The work of these volunteers assist the Council and contributes directly to the quality of life in Las Cruces.

Board Appointment Process

Boards, Commissions and Committees have been established by City Charter, City Council, or state law. Applications are accepted by the City Clerk's Office year-round and are kept on file for three (3) years. As vacancies occur on the various boards, applications on file are reviewed. Appointments are made at the Regular City Council meetings and applicants will be notified by the City Clerk's Office.

For more information, please contact the City Clerk's Office at (575) 541-2115.
