How to Become a Commissioner

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, announcements are made at City Council meetings. Announcements are also published in the local newspapers, posted on City of Beverly Hills Municipal Government television access (Channel BHTV10 on Time Warner Cable) and posted on this webpage. 

Application forms are available from the City Clerk's Office when a vacancy is announced.

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.
