Terms for the appointments for the Saint Anthony Falls Heritage Board and Minneapolis Tree Advisory are one-year and there are no term limits. Terms for the Minneapolis Bicycle Advisory Committee, Racial Equity Advisory Committee and Minneapolis Homegrown Food Council are two-years and some term limits may apply.

Some Boards/Commissions have a need for specialized skills, but most people will find a Board or Commission that is a great fit for their knowledge base. Public members of Board and Commissions are people who may not have regular, ongoing experience in a specific topic area, but have a general interest in a Board or Commission’s work area. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about an area of interest and contribute a fresh and unique perspective. 

Applications are due by 4:30 pm on Friday, December 3, 2021.  Following submission, applicants will receive an email confirming receipt of the application and describing the general process for appointment. Appointments for open positions will be made at the January 4, 2021 meeting of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. For a full description of each committee and to complete the application please visit: https://www.minneapolisparks.org/abca.

Applicants with questions about the appointments process should email their questions to [email protected].
