Minneapolis Appointed Boards & Commissions

The City of Minneapolis has over 50 volunteer-based boards, commissions and advisory committees that focus on topics ranging from animals to zoning. See a complete list of boards and commisssions. These entities provide input, advice and policy recommendations to the City Council, Mayor and City departments. Appointed boards and commissions are an important feature of municipal government and they allow residents to participate directly in government decision-making on important issues affecting the community.

The City actively seeks applicants who bring diverse backgrounds, life experiences and perspectives to enrich the work of appointed boards and commissions. Appointments are made twice each year in spring and fall. Vacancy notices are posted on-line to the City’s website. See current openings.

On August 29, 2012, Council Member Reich hosted a community forum to honor the many First Ward residents who serve on various City boards, advisory committees and commissions and to allow them an opportunity to share information about their experience with their neighbors and fellow community members. Find links below to some of the documents and informational pieces that were distributed at the forum, as well as a list of the current First Ward representatives:

For further information about the City’s appointed boards and commissions, contact the City Clerk’s office at 612-673-2216.
