There are many opportunities for our residents to help make Lansing a better place to live, work and raise a family. From volunteering to serve on a citizen board or commission to getting involved in your local Neighborhood Watch group, we encourage you to get involved and make a difference!

City Boards and Commissions

More than two dozen city boards and commissions help advise city leaders on key policy decisions that impact the quality of life in our community. Positions on these boards are generally appointed by the Mayor with the advice and consent of the City Council. Visit the Boards and Commissions page for more information and to download an application!

Neighborhood Watch

Working together, neighbor to neighbor, to make our community safer is what Neighborhood Watch is all about. Visit our Neighborhood Watch page to learn how you can get involved in an existing organization or start a new one!
