Serving on a Board, Committee or Commission

The City of Las Cruces' Boards, Committees and Commissions 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.

Appointment Process

Boards, Committees and Commissions 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.
