A good opportunity for residents to gain entry-level experience and learn about the inner workings of local civic governance, the city currently needs residents to volunteer on its Architectural Review Board, Transportation Demand Management Advisory Committee, Contra Costa County Advisory Council on Aging and Contra Costa County Library Commission.

Meeting times fluctuate between the various committees, but members will typically be required to meet one or two nights a month -- virtually that is, for now.

A full list of rules and guidelines, as well as applications, can be found and submitted online at the city of San Ramon’s official website. Additional questions are to be directed to the city clerk via email at [email protected]

The Architectural Review Board is in need of one alternate member to serve in its ranks and step in whenever a full member is unable to attend a meeting.
