The annual appointment process for residents who want to be part of Belmont town governance is underway.
“We are always looking for more volunteers to serve on committees,” said Select Board Chair Roy Epstein at a recent meeting.
Here is just a partial list of boards, committees, and commissions where there are openings:
- Zoning Board of Appeals
- Community Path Project Committee
- Youth Commission
- Transportation Advisory Committee
- Diversity Equity and Inclusion Implementation Committee
- Historic District Commission
- Human Rights Commission
- Planning Board
- Recreation Commission
- Shade Tree Committee
- Council on Aging, and more.
“There is a wide range of skills, backgrounds, and desire to serve in some combination, making effective committee members,” said Epstein. “So if you’re all interested in helping your town and, actually, having what’s for many people is a very rewarding experience, go to the volunteer portal on the town’s website and volunteer for committees. We’d be happy to consider you,” said Epstein.
