Positions are available on several City Boards and Commissions. The Chamber encourages residents to apply for these vacancies to get more involved in their community and have a say in the future of New Braunfels.

“Boards and commissions are important in that they enable citizens to participate in New Braunfels’ government processes,” said New Braunfels Mayor Barron Casteel. “Their activities help shape and influence public policy, because they lend a more diverse viewpoint for the City Council to consider when developing policy, ordinances and visions for the city.”

The participation of volunteers is vital to the New Braunfels community. Those volunteers choosing to become a part of a board or commission are also choosing to be a part of shaping the future of this community.

“All of the City's boards and commissions play a critical role in public policy development, implementation and review for the City Council,” added Mayor Casteel. “These groups serve an important function in molding decisions for our community, acting as the voice of the residents and providing stewardship of the City's assets.”

  • Animal Services Advisory Board

  • Construction Board of Appeals
  • Community Development Advisory Committee
  • Reinvestment Zone No.1 (TIRZ) Board
