Town Accepting Applications for Vacancies On Boards, Committees, Commissions

To the Editor:

The town is now accepting applications for vacancies on a variety of municipal boards, committees, and commissions (BCCs) including the Affordable Housing Commission, Environmental Commission, Planning Board, and Civil Rights Commission. Princeton’s volunteer boards and commissions ensure public involvement in the governmental process and provide vital advice to Council on major decisions.

Board, commission, and committee meetings are open to the public, and the public is strongly encouraged to attend and participate. Applicants are encouraged to attend at least one meeting of the advisory body that they are interested in joining.

The application to apply is available on the website, where you can also view a complete list of boards, committees, and commissions, as well as the calendar of meeting times. Please submit your application by December 10 in order to be considered for a spot starting in January 2019. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and will be kept on file and reviewed when vacancies occur.

We strive to have volunteer boards that reflect the diversity of the Princeton community. I hope you will consider volunteering for a board or commission and be a part of the conversation to shape the future of Princeton.
