Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from an essentially rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and for senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a fine Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office.
Boards Commissions and Committees
The City of San Dimas encourages all citizens to involve themselves in the decision-making process by participating in the various City commissions, committees, and boards. Serving on an advisory board, commission or committee provides an opportunity to assist in the implementation of local policies. Each entity is composed of local community members, and not only gives private citizens the ability to participate in civic activities but also gives voice to specific issues that may not otherwise receive proper attention.
Volunteers are appointed by the City Council to serve on each board, commission, or committee. The responsibilities, terms of office, membership size, qualifications, and meeting schedules vary for each board, commission, or committee.
How Do I Become a Board Commission or Committee Member?
Board Commission and Committee openings occur when a member resigns or has served the maximum allowable terms. When a position becomes available an application period is opened. During the open application period, interested persons may submit an application to the Office of the City Clerk. At the close of the application period, applicants are interviewed by the Mayor and one Councilmember or city staff liaison appointed to that board or commission. The Mayor and Councilmember will make a recommendation for an appointment at the next City Council meeting. Once selected the new member will be sworn in at the next Board, Commission, or Committee meeting.
