City Hall, Keene, NH

Interested in serving on a City Board or Commission?

The City's Boards and Commissions do important work that can have a huge impact on our community.  Serving on a City Board is a great way to get involved. Nominations are made based on your genuine desire to serve and help make Keene a great place to live, work and play! Some boards and commissions are very technical and require members to be able to read and/or interpret regulations or laws. Others are more general in their focus, but they all have one thing in common: they provide an opportunity for members of the public to become involved in local government in a meaningful and satisfying way.  Your commitment of one meeting per month can make a huge difference! In every case, candidates must be able to function as a group in an open meeting forum while demonstrating respect for the citizens who attend meetings. To get more information on what each board is involved in go to the Boards and Commissions page.  Interested?  Complete our volunteer form below!  Questions? Please email, or call (603) 352-0133 ext. 2.
