We Need You!

Do you care about future growth or design standards? Are you interested in city finances? Do you have an interest in improving public safety? Are you passionate about the library? Happy Valley is always looking for volunteers who are interested in their neighborhoods and their community. Dedicated citizens meet on a regular basis to address current issues and look for ways to make the City an even better place to live and work. Our committees with openings include:

  • Design Review Board
  • Traffic and Public Safety Committee
  • Budget Committee
  • Library Board (specifically, someone in the former Damascus area)

Each and every one of these committees provide strategic guidance to the City Council. The community volunteers on these committees chart a path for managing growth, implement a consistent design style for commercial developments, envision parks and recreation opportunities for future generations, create traffic solutions at key bottlenecks, provide oversight of how tax payer funds are spent, select materials for our library, and promote youth engagement.

Planning for the future isn’t just about what the City Council thinks is best. It takes a collective vision established by the community and cohesive action from our volunteer committees. The City is fortunate to receive guidance and input from our community volunteers on these committees.

To apply for an appointed advisory board position, complete and submit the Public Involvement Application by December 15th. For more information and an application, visit http://www.happyvalleyor.gov/city-hall/boards-commissions.
