Get Involved — Join a Board, Commission or Committee

City of Princeton


We are making progress! The City of Princeton encourages you to get involved and join an advisory board, commission or committee!

To tap into the wealth of skills, experience, and interest within our community, the City Council and staff of Princeton utilize several appointed boards, commissions, and committees to advise and make recommendations on a wide variety of issues that are crucial to our quality of life.

Public involvement in these appointed advisory bodies is an important and valued part of City government. They bring new ideas to the table and represent all of the diverse segments of our community, giving the input needed to help the City make the best, most informed and inclusive decisions possible.

“Having engaged residents working on our Boards, Commissions and Committees is critical to getting the local expertise and input we need to help the City progress forward,” said John-Mark Caldwell, City of Princeton mayor. “I urge residents looking to be a part of progress to apply.”

Interested in serving? General requirements are that applicants must have an interest in civic involvement, and must be 18 years of age or older, a registered voter, and be a resident of the City of Princeton (some board or commission positions may have additional requirements or preferred areas of expertise).

Current Opportunities

There are various open seats on advisory boards, commissions and committees. Interested residents can submit an applications for the Community Development Corporation, Economic Development Corporation, Planning & Zoning Commission, Library Advisory Board, and the Census Complete Count Committee.

All members serve without compensation and are appointed by the City Council.
