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 by Friday, December 8.

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 requests for appeal from the Waukee building code to determine the suitability of alternative building materials and types of construction, and hears appeals of decisions by administrative officials related to residential rental certificates and tenant complaints

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

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 

Public Art Advisory Commission: Develops a unified public art strategy and advises the Mayor, City Council and other community groups and agencies that are initiating public art projects in Waukee through design development review at various project stages 

Applications for the Library Board of Trustees will be reviewed next spring.
