Boards & Commissions

Citizen participation at all levels of the governmental process is valued and encouraged. One way to get involved is through service on a volunteer board. The City of Grand Junction has 18 boards, committees, commissions, and authorities on which over 100 citizens serve. 


Some of the City's boards require city residency but there are several that do not. There may be other qualifications required for membership on some boards but for the most part, the volunteer boards have a cross-section of community members willing to give of their time and particular talents.


Upcoming vacancies on the various boards are advertised on this website. You may apply to serve on a volunteer board by completing the online Volunteer Board Application. The City Council reviews the applications and makes the appointments to boards and commissions.
