Pocatello: Standing Advisory Committees

Mayor & City Council Advisory Committees

The City of Pocatello has 18 standing volunteer citizen advisory committees. While each committee has a specific mission, the overall purpose is for citizens to advise the Mayor and Council on issues of importance to the community.

Every advisory committee is open to individuals living inside the Pocatello city limits and many boards are open to residents as young as 16 years old. There are also a few opportunities for those living in the Area of City Impact. Applications are accepted at any time and are kept on file for 1 year in case of a resignation or other unanticipated occurrence.

Pocatello’s 19 advisory committees are listed below.  The number of vacancies, if any is noted next to the Committee name.

To apply for an advisory committee vacancy, fill out and submit an Advisory Committee Application, which can be found here:
