Current Commission Vacancies
Vacancies are established when terms expire or when an incumbent leaves the position prior to term expiration. Incumbents may re-apply when their terms expire. Vacancies have or will occur on the following commissions and committees:
Civic Action Commission
The Civic Action Commission creates events that bring the community together, including Community Service Day (the city-wide cleanup day involving hundreds of volunteers) and Summer Concerts by the Lake at City Hall. If you are a Pleasant Hill resident, a non-resident business person with a business in Pleasant Hill, or live outside City limits but within the City’s sphere of influence, you may qualify to be an applicant. Commissioners are very hands-on at events, and the City seeks candidates who enjoy assisting with the many planning and logistical tasks required. Meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. One vacancy: an unfilled term through February 2026. Open until filled.
The County Connection Advisory Committee advises the Central Contra Costa Transit Authority (County Connection) Board of Directors on issues and policies relating to fixed-route and paratransit bus services. The Advisory Committee considers and makes recommendations on finance and planning documents and issues such as operations, scheduling, administration, and legislation. Meetings are held every other month on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. at the County Connection office in Concord. One vacancy (as an alternate): term is through April 2025. Open until filled.
This commission was established to advise the City Council on ways to recognize and reaffirm the mission of the Council’s resolution on inclusion, including but not limited to making recommendations on appropriate diversity, social justice and equity training; proactively planning inclusive and welcoming events; and making policy recommendations regarding diversity and inclusion. Representatives must be a Pleasant Hill resident or own/work for a Pleasant Hill business, and should be comfortable being advocates of an inclusive community, and have an interest in or experience planning or supporting diversity and inclusion activities. Meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. Two vacancies: unfilled terms through September 2027. Open until filled.

Applications and Appointment Process
When vacancies occur, notices of vacancy are published and applications are accepted. The Interview and Nominating Committee (Committee), a sub-committee of the City Council, reviews applications and interviews qualified candidates. The Committee forwards a recommendation to City Council for final appointments, unless the position is a County or regional committee or board, in which case a recommendation is forwarded from City Council to the appropriate governing body for final appointment.
Online applications for City commissions or committees are provided below, and can be submitted at any time for any of the commissions listed on the form or advertised by the City unless stated otherwise, and will be kept on file for up to one year or until the recruitment period is complete.
