Boards & Commissions

The city has seven citizen advisory commissions and one board that review specific areas of interest and provide advice to the city council. If you’re looking to make a positive change in Roseville, we encourage you to apply to become a City of Roseville Commissioner.

Commissioners serve as advisors to our City Council and City staff. No experience is needed; training and onboarding is part of learning how to become an effective commission member.

A common misperception is that commission applicants must be experts in order to join one of the city’s Commissions. There are many other strengths that will add value to our commissions.

Perhaps the most valuable assets that you can bring to the community as a commissioner – your voice and your time.
