Boards and Commissions
City Council encourages resident involvement in City government, relying on dedicated residents to serve the City as a volunteer on various Boards and Commissions.   

Through strong community support and participation, Northville provides quality services, creating a desirable community for our citizens.

To attract the most qualified individuals to serve on our Boards and Commissions, vacancies are announced at City Council Meetings, the website, City News, and social media. 


The City Clerk's office accepts applications for all Board or Commissions.  The application remains active for two years.  

When a vacancy occurs, applicants are contacted for an interview with the Board and Commission Selection Committee.  The Selection Committee, comprised of two Council Members, interviews applicants and makes an appointment recommendation to City Council. 


​City Council is accepting applications for qualified and interested volunteers to fill a vacant position on the Planning Commission.

The Planning Commission mission includes development of the Master Plan and Master Plan Updates, review and approve site plan developments, review and approve special land use requests, review and make recommendations to City Council on all rezoning requests, and review and recommend changes to the Zoning Ordinance.

The Planning Commission meets at 7pm on the first and third Tuesday of each month at City Hall. Applicants must be residents and registered to vote in the City of Northville.

Applications are available on the City’s website or at the City Clerk’s Office, 215 W. Main Street, Northville, MI, 48167.
