Commissions and committees

Menlo Park welcomes and encourages residents' active participation through serving on a city commission or committee. Advisory commissions examine issues of community interest and make recommendations to the City Council on policy matters. Each advisory commission reviews specific subjects and carries out assignments as directed by the City Council or as prescribed by law. Each advisory commission establishes an annual work plan that is in line with the City Council's goals, which guides the commissions' activities and projects.

Menlo Park currently has seven City Council advisory bodies.
