Commissions & Committees

Each of the citizen groups plays an important role in the Brea community by making observations and bringing ongoing feedback to the Council Members. Citizen volunteers will also play a role in the conduct of governmental affairs and provide an important element in achieving the goals of the city.

Various commissions or committees will have different areas of expertise. At regular monthly meetings, they work with staff members and may be asked to review proposed new projects or to comment on activities already underway around town.

On August 16, 2022, City Council agreed to compensate Planning Commission members $50 per meeting with a maximum of $100 per month, contingent upon their completion of Planning Commission training and recertification.

There is no compensation for participation on other commissions and committees at this time, the service given is meaningful to all Brea residents.
