Town Administrator Mel Kleckner wishes to encourage Brookline residents to consider volunteering for a number of vacant positions on critical town boards and committees in 2022.

More than a dozen boards have vacancies that engaged residents are encouraged to fill in order to help each fulfill its critical role supporting the town’s work related to diversity and inclusion, the arts, public health, preservation, and more.

  • Zoning Board of Appeals;
