Applications Now Underway for City Boards and Commissions with Spring Appointments

Applications are now being accepted for the City boards and commissions that have Spring appointments. Applications are due by March 31st, 2024, and appointments under the Spring term will end May 31st each year, with the new appointment beginning on June 1st. Here are the committees that are currently accepting applications:

  • Airport Advisory Board
  • Arts Commission
  • Board of Adjustment
  • Central Texas Technology Center Advisory Board
  • Construction Board of Appeals
  • Downtown Board
  • Ethics Commission
  • Heritage Commission
  • Historic Landmark Commission
  • Housing Authority Board of Commissioners
  • Planning Commission
  • Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ #1)
  • Transportation and Traffic Advisory Board
  • Watershed Advisory Committee
  • Water and Wastewater Impact Fee Advisory Committee
  • Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ #3) - Downtown New Braunfels

“Applying for a City board or commission is easy, with an online application process that lets you upload your information, including resume and cover letter,” said City Secretary Gayle Wilkinson. “Boards and Commissions offer citizens an opportunity to directly participate in their City government by giving important feedback and direction to City Council. We hope anyone interested in one of these positions will join us for our upcoming Open House event to learn more.” 

The open house event is an opportunity for residents to hear directly from City staff about the various boards and commissions and their roles in City government. That event is set for February 8th, from 5pm to 7pm, in the Tejas Room at New Braunfels City Hall, located at 550 Landa Street.

Some boards and commissions have different eligibility requirements, so each application will be reviewed to ensure those are met. Those who are appointed to serve on a board or commission will then be required to complete one hour of training on the Texas Open Meetings Act.
