Boards, Commissions & Committees

The City's boards, commissions, and committees allow residents to participate in Laguna Beach's government by working with other citizens to advise City Council on issues they care about.

Laguna Beach residents may submit an application to serve on a board, commission, or committee to the City Clerk. All applicants are interviewed and City Council appoints the members at a special meeting. If you're interested in applying for a board, commission, or committee, click here
