There are many ways for citizens to participate and engage in their city’s government activities. Citizens can serve on one of the City’s many boards, commissions or committees; attend City Council and other civic meetings; register and participate in the many recreation programs and community events; use the many services offered through the City’s Library system; and more.
The City of Newport Beach has nearly 40 active boards, commissions, and committees. To learn more, please visit this web page and watch for announcements for when the City is seeking applications to fill vacancies.
Each month there are numerous community meetings that are open to the public and citizens are encouraged to attend and participate. The calendar on the City’s website lists all meetings and includes the place and time of each event. Agendas and minutes are posted when they become available, at least 72 hours in advance of the meeting per the Brown Act.
If you are looking for educational or recreational activities, there are programs and events for all ages offered through our Recreation and Senior Services Department and the Library Services Department.
Please note: The City strives to be compliant with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and we have designated coordinators and procedures in place to ensure access to individuals with disabilities.
