Serve on a Board or Commission:

A few of the City's Boards and Commissions are extremely active and have their own website pages, where their meeting minutes are posted (see sub-navigation list for page links):

  • Architectural Review Board
  • Kirkwood Arts Commission
  • Board of Adjustment
  • Kirkwood Human Rights Commission
  • Landmarks Commission
  • Kirkwood Park Board
  • Planning & Zoning Commission
  • Kirkwood Urban Forestry Commission

Several Boards and Commissions do not have website pages:

  • Find Aquatics Advisory Committee minutes and Greentree Planning Committee minutes on the Park Board's website page. 
  • The Citizens' Finance Committee meets in the fall of each year and advises City Council about budget matters. Their meeting minutes are included with each year's Approved City Budget. 

A few City boards, such as the Local Housing Authority, the Library Board, the Board of Adjustment, or the Kirkwood Park Board, have more specific responsibilities that are somewhat independent of the City Council. The Park Board and Library Board, for instance, have complete administrative control over the expenditures in their respective areas. The Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial body, which exercises its decision-making authority totally independent of the City Council.

The following boards and commissions do not meet regularly or they post meeting notices on their own websites: Civilian Pension Board, Civil Service Commission, Downtown Special Business District Advisory Commission, Industrial Development Authority, Library Board, Local Housing Authority, Market/Commons Committee, and the Police & Fire Pension Board.

Kirkwood Boards and Commissions have an important role in City government. Members are appointed by the City Council upon recommendation of the Mayor or a Council member. Most boards and commissions are advisory only. They study issues and make recommendations.

Minutes for Boards and Commission meetings are posted online for one year.  Older minutes can be obtained by contacting the Office of the City Clerk at 314-822-5802 or
