Volunteers Needed for Town Committees & Boards

Are you a new resident who is interested in parks, cut-through traffic, or special events?  Are you a resident concerned about tree conservation, stormwater management, or potential housing changes?  The Town Council encourages you to volunteer for a Town committee, board, or commission.  No prior experience is necessary, just a willingness to spend one hour per week, on average, extending your talents, working with fellow residents, and improving our community.

  • Climate and Environment: Inspires and facilitates energy conservation and environmental stewardship by the Town and its residents.
  • Community Relations: Encourages a strong sense of neighborliness through community activities, events, and communications.
  • Land Use: Considers and recommends solutions to issues and concerns relating to land use and construction in the Town.  Advises the Council on how to control development and redevelopment.
  • Long-Range Planning: Identifies emerging issues and trends.  Monitors county and state activities likely to impact the Town.
  • Public Services: Addresses traffic and pedestrian safety, parking, water run-off, utilities, and infrastructure.  Advocates for high-quality services and promotes a safe environment for residents.
  • Elections Board (one vacancy): Oversees all Town elections, including making appropriate provisions for nominations, approving ballots, and supervising the polls.
  • Ethics Commission (one vacancy): Receives, verifies, and maintains all financial disclosure forms required by the State of Maryland. 
  • Water Board (one vacancy): Hears requests from property owners who have had a water drainage plan denied by the Town.

If you are interested in volunteering, please email and include a few sentences about why you would like to serve on a particular body.  The Council extends a special thanks to those who have volunteered over the past year.  The dedication of your time and talents provides an invaluable resource to the Town and continues to strengthen and improve our community.
