Community Councils

The Fourth District is made up of many different communities, each with its own distinct assets and issues. Ten of these communities are sufficiently large and active that the Board of Supervisors has established a Community Council to advise the Board of a wide variety of concerns that arise within the community. Community Councils report on project planning, public health, safety, welfare public works and other issues. While they are strictly advisory in nature, the voice of the councils is heard by both the Board and other important entities such as the Planning Commission.

Applications for positions on the councils—as well as other County commissions, committees and councils—are always welcome. For more information on application, contact the Fourth District office at (760) 863-8211.
