Redwood City is looking for civic-minded residents to help scrutinize development projects and oversee libraries.
The City Council is accepting applications for two seats on the planning commission and three seats on the library board now through Oct. 4. Appointees to either group serve a four-year term and are not compensated.
Two of the three seats on the library board are new due to a City Charter amendment passed last November that expanded membership from five to seven.
Applicants must be at least 18 years old and an elector and resident of Redwood City.
The planning commission usually meets at 7 p.m. the first and third Tuesdays of the month, and the library board meets at 7 p.m. every second Tuesday of the month.
