Boards and Commissions

Boards and Commissions

The City of Dover is a vibrant community due in large part to the energy and talent of citizen participation on the City's many boards and commissions.

To the left, you will see all standing boards and commissions. For public bodies with appointed subcommittees, more information can be found within the board or commission subcommittee link.
