Boards & Commissions

The City of Mountlake Terrace has five boards and commissions.  Volunteer members offer their knowledge and experience to inform and advise the City Council on a variety of issues.

Our Boards and Commissions also help organize community events such as National Night Out, the Arts of the Terrace Juried Art Show, and other fun projects! Their influence helps shape the community. Most Boards and Commissions meetings are held monthly on a regularly scheduled night and time, and all are open to the public.

Each year beginning on July 1 or as vacancies occur, the city recruits members to fill vacant positions. Applicants must be bonafide residents of Mountlake Terrace and able to regularly attend meetings.
Board and Commission Recognition
Serving on a volunteer Board or Commission requires a personal commitment and applicants should consider their ability to commit their time and personal energy before applying. Potential applicants are encouraged to sit in on monthly meetings. Although board and commission members receive no financial compensation, members benefit from being able to meet other residents with similar interests, learn about the City, and help shape the future of Mountlake Terrace!
