Boards & Commissions

The City of Harrisburg is powered by great volunteers like you. Below is a list of citizen boards and commissions that give you an opportunity to use your talents to benefit our community. Your service on a commission or board will allow you to provide important input on polices that shape our government and our City. We currently have three boards and one commission that advise the Mayor and City Council on a variety of issues. We anticipate the establishment of additional citizen groups as the needs of the residents increase over time.  

Please take a moment to browse through the list. To apply for membership to any board or commission, please use the Application Form on the right side of the screen. Completed applications may be submitted in person at City Hall or emailed to

The normal meeting place for the Planning and Zoning Commission is the Harrisburg City Hall Conference Room, 301 E Willow Street.
