The City Council recommends that individuals interested in serving on a City commission first participate in the Team Beverly Hills Residential Educational Program to become acquainted with the City operations. When commission vacancies occur, notices are published in the local newspapers and posted on this webpage.
When a vacancy is announced, application forms are available and may be obtained from the City Clerk's Office by calling (310) 285-2400. Copies of the applications are also available on the Current Commission Vacancies webpage.
Applicants must be residents of the City for a minimum of two years prior to filing an application. The residency requirement does not apply to certain Architectural Commission and Human Relations Commission positions. In order to meet the residency requirement, applicants must demonstrate that they are entitled to register to vote in Beverly Hills Municipal elections, but applicants are not required to be registered voters.
Applicants may only apply to one vacancy per application cycle. An original, wet signature is required on all submitted applications. Thus, completed applications may be submitted in person or by mail only; faxed or e-mailed applications are not accepted.
