Cobourg's Coat of Arms

To assist with Council decisions, Cobourg has set up a number of Advisory Committees.  These are chaired by a citizen but members include elected councilors.  Any questions or submissions should be made to Council and not to citizens on these committees.  If you are interested in participating, vacancies become available from time to time and are advertised in the newspapers and on the Town's web site.  Application forms are available at the town office at that time.

For 2017, Advisory Committees and local boards will be established as listed below. The number of members of each of the Committees is noted in brackets.

Environmental, Active Transportation Committee (6) + 1 council
Cobourg Heritage Committee (CHC) (6) + 1 council
