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