Advisory Boards and Committees

Citizen Advisory Boards are an integral part of local government administration.  These Boards are an effective manner for the elected officials to engage citizens in the democratic process.  Their primary purpose is to provide judicious advice to the Town Council from the citizens' perspective.  Advisory Boards are able to devote significant time to specific areas of local government where the Town Council is typically unable.  These Boards thoroughly discuss, analyze and evaluate specific issues facing Knightdale.  Afterwards, they formulate and forward, well-developed recommendations to the Town Council for consideration of adoption.  In short, citizen participation on Advisory Boards is crucial to ensuring that needs of our community are being fully met.

The Town of Knightdale Advisory Board Chart provides an overview of the four (4) Advisory Boards that assist the Town Council in the decision-making process.

The Town continuously seeks qualified town residents to serve Advisory Boards. If you are interested in serving or would like more information regarding a particular board, please contact Whitney Ledford, Town Clerk at 919-217-2225 or
