Commission & Committee Applicants Needed
Looking for a way to get involved? The City of Claremont encourages citizen participation in its decision-making process, most notably through its active use of citizen commissions, committees, and boards. These groups advise and assist the City Council in dealing with specific issues. Currently, applicants are being sought for appointment to the Police Commission, the Traffic and Transportation Commission, and the Sustainability Committee.
The Police Commission reviews and comments on Police Department policies, procedures, and practices, and assists in setting goals for the Department that reflect community values. This Commission also provides a public forum to address concerns, complaints, and commendations regarding the Police Department. The Police Commission meets bi-monthly on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.
The Traffic and Transportation Commission reviews and comments on the traffic impacts of major development proposals. This includes traffic circulation plans, public transportation, and similar items referred to the commission by the City Council or other commissions. The Traffic and Transportation Commission meets the fourth Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m.
The Sustainability Committee was established to provide broad oversight of the Sustainable City Plan by reviewing annual grade cards and making recommendations on the scope and timing of future updates to the Plan.
Individuals interested in serving on the Police Commission, Traffic and Transportation Commission, or Sustainability committee are encouraged to file an application with the City Clerk by December 13, 2017. For more information or assistance, please contact the City Clerk’s office at (909) 399-5460.
