Members of the Soledad City Council participate in many local and regional boards and commissions as part of representing their constituency in regional, county, and statewide decision-making processes. Additionally, Soledad residents are asked to participate as advisors and liaisons to the City Council on various standing committees designed to engage community members in the civic engagement and decision-making process.
The City of Soledad Planning Commission consists of five members – each member is individually appointed by the Mayor and members of the Soledad City Council. All appointees are required to reside within Soledad City limits. Regular meetings of the City of Soledad Planning Commission are held the second Thursday of each month beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall. All meetings are open to the public and governed by the rules of the Ralph M. Brown Open Meeting Act.
