Boards and Committees
Mansfield has a long history of citizen participation in government. In May 1703, the Connecticut General Assembly revised local town boundary lines to ensure Mansfield residents could access a town meetinghouse without having to cross the "bad and dangerous" Natchaug River. A commitment to citizen involvement determined the very boundaries of Mansfield!

To find out about attending or joining a committee, you can view their Agendas and Minutes or use the Volunteer for a Committee Application/Form or contact the Town Council's Committee on Committees, which recruits members for volunteer boards and committees. To learn more about elected positions, contact the Town Clerk's Office or your local political party.
