Concord Pavilion, Measure Q committees seek members

The Concord City Council encourages residents to apply for openings on two committees - the Concord Pavilion Community Outreach Committee and the Measure Q Oversight Committee.

The five-member Concord Pavilion Community Outreach Committee is a new entity formed this year. Four members are being sought from the community and one member will be appointed by the manager of the Concord Pavilion. The committee will provide guidance to the Pavilion General Manager on outreach efforts to attract applications from local schools, cultural organizations and the community to bring additional community events to the Pavilion, which will expand the use of the venue beyond the concert season. Meetings will be held no more than once a quarter. The term of appointment to the committee is two years; the application deadline is March 6.

Measure Q, the half-cent sales tax measure, was passed by Concord voters in 2010 and renewed in 2014. The five-member Measure Q Oversight Committee provides recommendations to the City Council on the use of Measure Q revenue and reviews the City's annual audit report related to Measure Q. The committee must include at least one member representing the business community, at least three Concord residents, and the fifth member from either category. The committee meets three to six times annually from February through June to coincide with the City's budget cycle. The application deadline is Feb. 20.

Applications may be obtained from the City Clerk's Office, 1950 Parkside Drive, or requested by calling (925) 671-3495. Application forms are also available on the City's website at
