The City of Sunnyvale has a strong tradition of community participation, one of which is through service on a board or commission. The City Charter provides for the establishment of boards and commissions to advise the City Council and provide ongoing citizen input into policies and issues affecting the Sunnyvale community.
Boards and commissions recommend to City Council specific policy-related issues for possible Council study and action, and provide a forum and opportunity for broad community participation in the identification and prioritization of those issues. Boards and Commissions advise City Council on specific policy issues Council has chosen to study, and to provide a forum and opportunity for broad community input on those issues.
Descriptions of each board and commission, agendas and minutes can be found on each board or commission's individual page available in the left navigation.
Members serve on a volunteer basis for a four-year term and are appointed by the City Council. General eligibility requirements include voter registration and Sunnyvale residency. Special requirements vary.
