Get involved in city decisions; serve on a board, committee, council, or foundation

Commerce City is seeking individuals to serve as members on the Cultural Council, Capital Improvement Projects Citizen Advisory Committee, Derby Review Board, Planning Commission and Quality Community Foundation.

“Serving on municipal boards and commissions is a great way to get more involved in the community,” said City Manager Brian McBroom. “We encourage residents to learn more about how the city operates and help build a Quality Community for a Lifetime.”

Residents are needed for the following positions:

  • One alternate seat is open for the Cultural Council. Members serve a 3-year term to help advance and preserve art, music, theater and dance within the city. Meetings are the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m.
  • One at-large Capital Improvement Projects Citizen Advisory Committee vacancy. These members serve a 3-year term to work with staff on capital projects by providing advice to city council on opportunities and issues related to the implementation of the five, voter-approved CIP projects. They focus on three program elements: accountability, engagement, and potential. Meetings are once a month from 6-7:30 p.m.
  • One alternate and two design professionals are needed for the Derby Review Board. This board reviews development applications for the Derby redevelopment area based upon the standards outlined in the Derby design guidelines. The board may approve variances to the standards and appeals to board decisions are heard by the city council. This board meets at 5:30 the third Tuesday of each month.
  • Two seats are open for the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission conducts hearings and makes recommendations to city council for physical development master planning of the city, rezoning, platting, and subdividing land within the city. The commission is also responsible for the official zoning ordinance and city zoning map. They meet the first Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m.
  • The Quality Community Foundation has three openings. QCF’s purpose is to support and obtain funding for post-secondary education and youth recreational programs. Members serve a three-year term and meet the third Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m.

Interested residents should contact Lyndsy Willette at 303-289-3784 or visit www.c3gov.com/boards for more information and to apply online. All applications should be submitted by 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20. Paper applications can be picked up at the city clerk’s office at the civic center, 7887 E. 60th Avenue.
