Getting Involved

There are many ways to get involved in your community. One way is to volunteer to serve on one of the city's official Boards or Committees. The following boards and committees periodically have openings: Planning Commission, Library Board, Parks Board, SandyNet Board, Transit Advisory Committee, Budget Committee, and Sign Review Committee.

The web site also shows you how to contact your public officials including the City Council, and it also lists the City Council's current goals and policies. Meetings of the Sandy City Council and Planning Commission are broadcast live and replayed on Wave Cable Channel 7. Agendas and staff reports for the meetings are also published on the web site.

If speeding traffic is a problem in a neighborhood, it is sometimes possible to deal with the problem with changes to the street (for example, curb extensions, traffic circles, speed humps, etc.). The city has developed a Neighborhood Traffic Management Program that gives residents tools for dealing with traffic problems.

The City Council has assigned each of its members to serve as a liaison to the various neighborhoods within the city. See the neighborhoods map and liaison assignments. Use the Council's directory page to reach individual Council members.
