The Town of Amherst relies on the efforts of our volunteers!
We encourage all residents to explore the Town website http://AmherstMA.gov to learn more about the important work of various appointed bodies and then complete an online Citizen Activity Form (CAF) at http://AmherstMA.gov/CAF for consideration by the appointing authority.
The following Town of Amherst appointed bodies -- committees, boards, commissions -- currently have vacancies:
CDBG Advisory Committee
Design Review Board
Dickinson Local Historic District Commission
Human Rights Commission
Kanegasaki Sister City Committee
La Paz Centro, Nicaragua Sister City Committee
Leisure Services & Supplemental Education (LSSE) Commission
North Amherst Local Historical District Study Committee
Public Art Commission
Public Shade Tree Committee
Public Transportation & Bicycle Committee
Zoning Board of Appeals
Many other Town of Amherst appointed bodies are likely to have one or more vacancies as members retire or are not reappointed upon expiration of June 30, 2015 terms.
Residents are encouraged to apply now for the appointed body of their choice, regardless of whether a current vacancy exists or is predicted, as the CAF remains on file for two years from the date of filing.
