City of SB Commission Openings

If there are any of you that want to run for city council someday, there is a long history of council members having served on city commissions -- especially planning. Here's your opportunity -- too bad the deadline isn't after election day, some of you are probably busy. Kind of like a planning hearing during Fiesta? Maybe. Maybe not.

The City of Santa Barbara conducts a semi-annual recruitment drive to fill open positions on its many Commissions and Advisory Committees. There are currently several openings on numerous Santa Barbara City advisory boards and commissions. They include:

  • Architectural Board of Review (ABR)
  • Community Development & Human Services Committee
  • Creeks Advisory Committee
  • Historic Landmarks Commission (HLC)
  • Parks & Recreation Commission
  • Planning Commission
  • Transportation & Circulation Committee (TCC)
  • Water Commission

The City’s website contains detailed descriptions of each Commission and Advisory Committee, including position qualifications, length of term, contact information, and an application. Note that some positions do require certain expertise. The website address is:

The next recruitment is underway with the following schedule:

Application deadline: Friday, November 6, 2006 at 5:00 p.m.
Interviews: Tuesday, November 21, 2006 at 2:00 p.m. and Tuesday, December 5, 2006 at 6:00 p.m.

What is to comment about?
This is merely an announcement.

If you want something to comment about, see the latest posting about the next chapter in the News Press Mess. The Bill Carson confusion comment about feminism is another, based on the one called WPC Dinner Faux Pas.
