The City of Waukee utilizes several important boards, commissions and committees made up of Waukee residents. These volunteer groups help to shape public policy and assist in various advisory capacities, allowing the City to benefit from the knowledge of a wide range of community representatives. Some boards and commissions are quasi-judicial, which means the State Code of Iowa has designated some legislative authority to them. 

Waukee residents who are interested in serving can learn more and apply at Waukee.org/BoardsAndCommissions by Sunday, November 27.

Board of Adjustment: considers appeals for variances to official zoning ordinances of the City of Waukee and has the authority to grant special exceptions or variances

Board of Appeals: reviews appeals for variances from the Waukee building code to determine the suitability of alternative building materials and types of construction

Park Board: Advises the City of Waukee on master planning, maintenance and improvements for parks, trails, green spaces and recreation facilities as well as volunteers at City-hosted events and festivals

Planning & Zoning Commission: Evaluates rezoning, preliminary and final plans, site plans, comprehensive plans and certain ordinance changes for recommendation of approval or denial to City Council

Applications for the Library Board of Trustees will be reviewed next spring. As 2023 applications are currently under review, additional applications for the Public Art Advisory Commission will be reviewed next fall.
