(ABC 6 News) -- The Rochester mayor's office is looking to fill several volunteer positions that could help shape the future of the city.
Although no experience is necessary for the positions, they still play a big part when it comes to speaking for the community.
Right now, mayor Ardell Brede's office is looking to fill positions on the Energy Commission, the Citizens Advisory on Transit, the Committee on Urban Design and Environment, the Mayo Civic Center Commission and the Planning and Zoning Commission.
On average most boards meet on a monthly basis and members can serve up to a three-year term.
Lindsey meek, the chair for the Planning and Zoning Commission says they encourage people of all backgrounds to apply.
"It’s important to have a full board because 9 people truly bring a diverse set of eyes and ears and insights into any project proposal. So the more the merrier," said Meek.
Anissa Hollingshead, the City Clerk, and Communications Directors say the positions allow for the community to have a voice, “Especially at a period of such growth in the city. A good opportunity for the residents that are interested in that area to play a role and be actively involved in their government."
You can apply for the positions in the City of Rochester's website.
The mayor's office will be looking at the applications during the next few weeks.
