Would you like to make a meaningful contribution to the community? Boards and Committees are an important part of our local government and help weave the fabric of our beautiful City. Their success is entirely reliant upon the selfless dedication of our volunteers along with the support of City staff.

Board of Assessors

Currently, we are seeking one regular member and one alternate member to serve on the Board of Assessors.

The Board of Assessors is the decision-making authority for all real property assessments in the City. They ensure equitable, defensible assessments for all taxpayers in Lebanon, including decisions on property tax abatement requests, exemptions, and changes to property values. The Board meets as needed and conducts business regularly, therefore a full roster is needed for optimal efficiency. Does this interest you? Please apply online

The Planning Board is responsible for reviewing all new construction, except one and two-family homes, and subdivisions of land occurring in the City.

Zoning Board of Adjustment

Currently, we are seeking two alternate members to serve on the Zoning Board of Adjustment.

The Zoning Board of Adjustment, pursuant to New Hampshire law, hears and decides appeals from administrative decisions, special exceptions, and variances. This Board votes and decides on these applications as they conform to the City Zoning Ordinance, and other applicable City and State regulations. Would you like to volunteer? Please apply online

Please contact the Planning & Development Department for further information. 

Alternate Positions on Other Boards and Committees

There are also alternate member positions available on several other Boards and Committees. Alternate members step in when there is not a quorum of regular members present for a meeting, which helps ensure that business continues uninterrupted. Being an alternate member is a great way to start volunteering. And, when a regular member steps down from a Board or Committee, alternate members are given preference to fill the vacancies.

Are you interested in serving on one of these Boards or Commissions? Please apply online.
