Open seating

City of Chico looks to fill open commission seats

Want to serve the city of Chico without the pain and agony of running for election? The city has five commissions and one board with seats opening up at the end of the year.

Those seats are for the Planning Commission (three), the Bidwell Park and Playground Commission (three), the Arts Commission (four), the Airport Commission (four) and the Architectural Review and Historic Preservation Board (three). Applicants may apply for more than one seat.

The appointments last four years, with the exception of the Airport Commission, which has two four-year and two two-year seats open.

Applications and instructions are available on the city website or in the City Clerk’s Office on the third floor of the Chico Municipal Center at 411 Main St. The applications must be turned in by 5 p.m. on Dec. 3. The appointees will be chosen by vote of the City Council at its Dec. 18 meeting.
