Boards, Commissions and Committees

The County of Santa Barbara encourages residents to participate in and serve on local regulatory and advisory boards. Hundreds of citizen volunteers constitute approximately 70 boards, commissions and committees. These deliberative bodies assist the County Board of Supervisors in the development of critical policies that impact our quality of life in a myriad of ways including health and human services, land use, parks, public facilities and public safety to name a few.

Pursuant to State law, the Clerk of the Board maintains the official "Roster of Boards, Commissions and Committees".  Click here for detailed information about each committee, its membership, the terms of office, vacancies and to apply online. Application forms are also available at the Office of the Clerk of the Board located at 105 E. Anapamu St. Room 407 in Santa Barbara. The Roster is updated weekly with information regarding new appointees, terms of appointment, vacancies or amendments to membership requirements.

For assistance or addition information please contact the Clerk of the Board at (805) 568-2240.
