Looking for a way to get involved in Wood Village?

The City of Wood Village is searching for enthusiastic citizens who want to help by serving on several committees and boards.

Among the opportunities available are positions on the Budget Committee, Parks Commission, Planning Commission and an Urban Renewal Board. Those interested do not have to have any specific experience, and these are all volunteer positions.

Applications can be found on the city's website and are due at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2. The City Council will then review the applications in December and appoint new members in January.

The Parks Commission has one current opening. This group serves as advisors to the City Council on the development, operation and maintenance of city park facilities. The commission meets on an as-needed basis. Sometimes there will be several meetings if a project is being developed or there could be several months with no meetings at all.

Budget Committee also has an open seat. Budget committee members review the budget and make recommendations to the City Council each year. The committee typically meets two or three times in the spring, usually in the evening.

Wood Village's Planning Commission has one opening. Planning Commissioners meet on an as-needed basis as well (usually once per month in the evening) to enforce the city's zoning codes. They review land use plans and make development recommendations to the City Council. Planning Commissioners are appointed by the City Council.

Urban Renewal Board is looking for two more members. The board members track progress within the city and provide guidance on how to use funds for infrastructure systems, incentives for private investment, and redevelopment of the Urban Renewal District. The Board meets on an as needed basis.
