Menlo Park welcomes and encourages
residents' active participation in serving on a commission
and committee that act as advisory groups to the elected City
Council. Commissions' primary roles are to advise the City Council
on policy matters, review specific subjects and carry out assignments
as directed by the City Council or as prescribed by law.
Commissions and Committees are not involved
in the administration or operation of City departments and are
prohibited from directing staff to initiate programs or projects.
Additionally, advisory bodies may not conduct major studies
or establish official policy without the approval of the City
Section 2.04.200; Resolution
2801 and its amendments; Chapter 2.12; CC 01-004; and CC 91-001.
there are seven active Commissions and Committees.
