Have you always wanted to get involved in city government? Would you like to provide valuable input on important issues affecting Brooklyn Park? Do you feel a need to give back to your community? If you’ve answered "yes" to any of these questions, you should consider applying for a seat on a Brooklyn Park city commission!

Serving on a commission is a great way to provide your city government with valuable citizen input and discuss important issues with your fellow residents. Plus, it’s a lot of fun.

What is a commission?

A commission is a volunteer group that provides recommendations and suggestions to the City Council, either on specific issues or special areas of concern regarding a government or community function.

The City of Brooklyn Park depends on citizen volunteers to advise elected officials and help them govern effectively.

Who can be a commissioner?

Commissions are open to Brooklyn Park residents. Some commissions may require a member to reside in a specific voting district (Central, East or West). Charter Commission members must be qualified voters.
