Information & Terms

Introduction

The City of Laguna Beach is well known for the participation of its citizens. One way to participate is to serve on a City Council appointed Commission, Board or Committee. The City Council makes appointments to the Board of Adjustment/Design Review Board in January, the advisory committees in February, and the Arts Commission and Planning Commission in June. The Personnel Board is appointed in September of odd-numbered years.

Submitting an Application

The City Council issues a press release announcing the application period for the Commissions, Boards and Committees. Any Laguna Beach resident who is interested may submit an application to the City Clerk. All applicants are interviewed and appointments are made by the City Council at one of their regular meetings.
