Below is a list of the various boards and committees within the Town of Arlington. These groups help make decisions on the future of our community.

The Town relies on its citizens to staff these committees. Members serve for various terms, based on the by-laws of the committee. If you are a Town resident interested in participating, please submit an Interest Form for our files. The Town looks to these Interest Forms for possible candidates as positions become available.  While open positions are typically filled in October, sometimes positions open unexpectedly other times of the year.
