There are dozens of boards and commissions in Alexandria with vacancies, giving locals a chance to be in the room where it happens.
Some of the notable vacancies include:
- Board of Architectural Review — 2-year term: One vacancy is up for consideration due to a citizen member resigning. The BAR meets twice a month to review development applications and determine appropriateness, but in Alexandria the BAR holds significantly more sway than in other localities.
- Community Criminal Justice Board — 2-year term: Two vacancies are available on the Community Criminal Justice Board. This board oversees several programs and services used for the courts in diverting offenders from jail. The board also monitors and evaluates community programs, services and facilities to determine their impact on local offenders.
- Environmental Policy Commission — 2-year term: Two vacancies are available for the Environmental Policy Commission, which advises and makes recommendations to the City Council on environmental issues ranging from land use to noise pollution.
- Park and Recreation Commission — 3-year term: Two vacancies are available for the Parks and Recreation Commission, which advises the City Council on issues related to — hold onto your socks — parks and recreational activities.
- Waterfront Commission — 2-year term: One vacancy is available for a representative from the Commission for the Arts. The Waterfront Commission helps shape policy in some of the city’s most high-profile issues, like flooding and the Torpedo Factory overhaul. But they also meet at 7:30 a.m. Yikes.
