The Claremont City Council encourages citizen participation in its decision-making process, most notably through its active use of citizen commissions, committees and boards, as well as department committees.

Appoints are made by the Mayor after consultation with—and full approval by—the City Council, which relies heavily on the recommendations of individuals and community groups.

Qualifications for service include:

  • Claremont residency (with certain exceptions).
  • A strong interest in the community and the work of the commission.
  • The ability to give generously of one's time when serving.

Individuals interested in serving on a commission, committee or board are encouraged to file an application with the City Clerk. Applications are kept on file and considered whenever a vacancy occurs.

For more information or assistance, please contact the City Clerk’s office.


There are currently five citizen commissions that advise and assist the City Council in dealing with specific issues. Each commission is comprised of seven citizens who serve terms of up to four years, with terms ending August 31. Use the following links for more information on each of the commissions:
