Advisory Boards

The Town of Waynesville has eight standing volunteer Boards and Commissions, with close to fifty citizen volunteers. Each is unique in its size, meeting schedule, and specific function; however, the overall mission is the same: To make Waynesville a place in which we can be proud to live, work and play.

Citizens who serve on these boards and commissions perform a community service using their skills, interests and initiatives to make the difference.

Whether you are interested in recreational activities, public art, or land use practices, the Town of Waynesville has opportunities for you to volunteer to share your time and talents. Applications are accepted year-round, with appointment made in June of each year for upcoming vacancies.

Questions about the application and appointment process should be directed to the Town Clerk's Office by e-mail at or by calling (828) 452-2491.

In addition to boards and commissions, the Town at times forms special committees and task forces to work for a finite time on specific, current issues. Appointments to these special groups are made as needed and terms of service vary. If the Board of Aldermen determines the need for a special committee, public announcements will made calling for volunteers.
