Advisory Boards and Committees

Mesa residents are invited to participate in the process of City of Mesa government. One of the most effective ways to provide input is through service on one of the City's citizen advisory boards and committees. Through this service, civic-minded citizens become involved in their local government and make recommendations to the Mesa City Council. The City, in turn, benefits from the knowledge, experience and expertise of citizens.

If you are a resident of Mesa and are interested in serving on one of the following boards, contact Ian Linssen at (480) 644-3002 or send an e-mail to for more information about the board.

Prospective board and committee members must complete an Application Form, which can be completed and e-mailed online or printed and mailed in. Completed PDF forms may be mailed to the Mayor's Office or sent by fax to 480-644-2175. Appointments to the boards are recommended by the Mayor and approved by the City Council. Thank you for your interest in helping to make Mesa an even better place in which to live, work and play.
