Volunteers sought for boards in Bradenton Beach

Bradenton Beach is looking for a few good people to volunteer on several advisory boards. Actually, "good" is not a prerequisite - you just have to be a voter in the city, but even that isn’t necessarily required in some instances.

The city has vacancies on its board of adjustment and planning and zoning board. Both require members to be electors in Bradenton Beach.

There is also a need for people to serve on the scenic highway corridor management entity, overseeing the goals to improve Gulf Drive in the city. No residency is required for that board.

And a new group, "Waterfronts: Accessible, Viable, Ecological, Sustainable" is forming and seeking members for a host of subcommittees. The new group is charged with offering guidance to enact goals of the Waterfronts Florida Community designation the city achieved earlier this year.

The WAVES meeting is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30, at city hall. Further information on the committees is available by calling city hall at 778-1005.
