Boards and Commissions
Serving on a Board or Commission

The City of Richardson’s Boards and Commissions are comprised of concerned citizens who volunteer their time, knowledge, and expertise to make a difference in their community. Duties of the boards may include serving in an advisory capacity, examining in-depth issues such as park development and planning and zoning, making recommendations to City Council, and making decisions on variance requests from citizens. The work these citizens do assists the Council and contributes directly to the quality of life enjoyed by both residential and corporate citizens.
