Make 2020 the Year to Volunteer for a Township Committee

Interested in working on topics related to transportation, community health, economic development or street trees? Make 2020 a year to get involved in one of the many township-driven volunteer committees. 

Volunteers are being sought for township committees through October 31.

These committees are appointed by township trustees for a specific purpose and have a one-year term:

  • Anderson Township Senior Center Advisory Committee - ensures the Senior Center continues to foster a creative and intellectually stimulating environment that enhances the lives of Anderson seniors.
  • WeTHRIVE! Anderson Committee- This committee works to create a healthier Anderson Township, where safety, health and vitality is promoted throughout the community. Topics of concern to the committee include health concerns in Anderson Township such as substance use/abuse, social health, injury prevention, environmental health, emergency preparedness, chronic disease, community art and community involvement.
  • Economic Development Committee–reviews the township’s economic development strategy and makes recommendations to trustees on policy or project decisions regarding the township’s business environment.
  • Tree Committee–promotes and manages healthy, safe, and appropriate trees along streets and on public grounds or roadways and makes recommendations to the township’s tree planting program.
  • Greater Anderson Township Betterment Committee-non-profit organization working behind the scenes to facilitate community-wide improvements and projects.
  • Transportation Advisory Committee–provides recommendations on transportation matters and projects to trustees and assists with implementation of the Anderson Trails plan.

Two committees operate on a five-year term, with one-year alternates: 

  • Zoning Commission–hears cases that involve modifying the Anderson Township Zoning Map or the Anderson Township Zoning Resolution.
  • Board of Zoning Appeals–reviews appeals to the township’s Zoning Resolution, as well as other development-related applications. 

Volunteers are sought for the Anderson Park Board of commissioners. The board oversees the Anderson Park District, composed of five township residents. The board is a volunteer policy-making entity and provides direction the Anderson Park District management staff.
