Commissions & Committees

Volunteer Opportunities

The City of Brea depends upon citizen participation and service. Citizen volunteers play a vital role in the conduct of governmental affairs and provide an important element in achieving the goals of the city. The left-hand column lists Brea's commissions and committees. Please make a selection to learn more.

Each of these citizen groups plays an important role in the Brea community by making observations and bringing ongoing feedback to the council members. Various commissions or committees will have different areas of expertise. At regular monthly meetings, they work with staff members and may be asked to review proposed new projects or to comment on activities already underway around town. While there is no compensation for participation on commissions and committees, the service given is meaningful to all Brea residents.
