The City of Columbia's Boards and Commissions are formed to assist with important policy decisions that impact the community. These groups conduct short and long term planning, research, and discussions of specific issues which are essential to the continued growth and prosperity of our City. Some boards/commissions are designed to be the policy-making authority over a particular entity; for others, their mission is to make recommendations and advisory opinions to the City Council. Citizen involvement is strongly encouraged.
Most boards/commissions regularly meet on a set monthly schedule, although some meet quarterly or even on an "as-needed" basis. However, times are occasionally changed, for various reasons. If you wish to attend a specific meeting, you should check with the contact person on that board to verify the time and location.
