Boards and Committees


Our boards and committees work hard to make sure we're doing the most we can for everyone in Woodstock. The responsibilities of the members of our boards and committees include:

  • Providing advice and recommendations on a number city issues
  • Reviewing requests from our residents
  • Prioritizing projects  

Applying for a Board or Committee Position

City of Woodstock residents can make a difference in the community by becoming a volunteer member of a Board or Committee.  Advisory Board and Committee members provide information to City Council, which contributes to the development of policies, programs and initiatives. Your expertise, enthusiasm and pride can make all the difference.

  • Notices are placed on the City Website or in the What's on Woodstock magazine when positions become available.
