Boards & Commissionsupdated: Thursday, August 18, 2016
The City of St. Louis Park encourages citizens to share their talents and perspectives by serving on an advisory board or commission. Citizen involvement and engagement improves the quality and responsiveness of public decision-making. Serving as a member of a board or commission offers an excellent opportunity to become actively involved in city government and help shape our community. In exchange for your commitment of both time and effort, these committees influence the policies, actions and progress of our community.
