Boards & Commissions
Dear Laramie Citizens,

I write to encourage you, our Laramie citizens, to get involved with the City by applying to serve as a volunteer on boards and commissions. By stepping up to the plate, you can be a vital link of communication between the community, City Council, and the City's administration.

Laramie is a beautiful, friendly, and welcoming community with a small town feel that offers cultural and educational opportunities otherwise seen only in large metropolitan areas. Our outdoor recreational possibilities are great, and our culture of museums, galleries, and concert and theatre performances is top-notch. Our strong business-support climate and additional incentives from local and state economic development agencies make us a key regional center. Laramie is also a safe, comfortable place to raise a family with quality schools and programs to keep your families entertained, growing, and learning.

As a member of the community, I encourage you to review our boards and commissions. You will see they are key to creating policy and making recommendations to our City Council. They need professionals and concerned citizens. They need you. Our success depends on you - the people who live here - caring about your neighbors, neighborhoods, traffic, health, civil service, environment, and - in sum - our community. Thank you for your part in our effort to make Laramie a place that all of Wyoming calls home. 

Want to know what each Board or Commission does?  Here is an Overview of all Boards, Joint Powers Boards, and Commissions.
