The City of Lynnwood is currently accepting applications to fill vacancies on the Historical Commission, the Library Board, and the Parks & Recreation Board. The City of Lynnwood has several Boards and Commissions which were created by City Ordinance to serve as advisory bodies to the city administration, the Mayor and the City Council. Commissioners serve three year terms, must live in the City of Lynnwood and be a registered voter. No experience necessary, just a strong desire to make a difference in your community!

About the Historical Commission
The Historical Commission plays a pivotal role in preserving Lynnwood's historical and cultural resources. They undertake research and fact-finding and make recommendations for City Council action to recognize and preserve historic sites, structures, artifacts, trees and landscapes. The Commission also serves as the primary forum for citizen participation in recognizing and preserving the history of the community. The Historical Commission meets on the third Tuesday of each month from 7-8:30pm at the Wickers Building at Heritage Park.

About the Library Board
The Library Board serves in an advisory capacity, focusing specifically on facility issues of the Lynnwood Library building. Members have drafted policies on the use of the library meeting room, public display space, and bulletin boards, advising both the library staff and Mayor and City Council on these issues. The Library Board meets six times per year at the Lynnwood Library.

About the Parks & Recreation Board
