Board and Commission Volunteers

VolunteerThe City of Lynnwood has several Boards, Commissions, and Committees. The Boards and Commissions were each created by City Ordinances to serve as advisory bodies to the city administration, the Mayor and the City Council. Most require that you must live within the Lynnwood City limits or in Lynnwood's Municipal Urban Growth Area, and they generally meet once per month. Committees are created on an as-needed basis, usually by Mayoral Directive or Council Resolution.

Application Process

If you are interested in serving on a City Board or Commission, you may submit an application at any time. All applications will be kept on file in the Mayor's Office and applicants will be contacted when there is an opening. The process to become appointed is as follows: 

  1. Applicants that meet qualifications will be interviewed by the Board or Commission Staff Liaison and/or the Department Director, and then referred to the Mayor's Office.
  2. Applicants must attend at least one meeting of the Board or Commission for which they have applied.
  3. Applicants will be interviewed by the Mayor's Office, and then referred on to the City Council.
