Boards and Commissions

The City of Palo Alto has eight Boards and Commissions. The City Council appoints each to focus on specific areas within the City. Board Members and Commissioners volunteer their time and expertise to review items. The items are then reviewed by the City Council. For more details, please review our Boards, Commissions and Committees Handbook(PDF, 2MB) or visit our Board Member and Commissioner Resources page.

Hybrid meetings for boards, commissions, and committees began March 1, 2022.

In-person and virtual teleconference participation are available to the public. The Council Chambers and Community Meeting Room, located in City Hall at 250 Hamilton Ave, are the physical location for all meeting groups. (Please note: Ad Hoc Committees remain virtual-only).
