This nine-member commission advises the City Council on events and programs that improve the quality of life for residents in Pleasant Hill. At least seven of the members must be residents of the city. Up to two members may be business persons, with a business in Pleasant Hill, who are nonresidents or persons living outside the corporate limits but within the city’s sphere of influence.
The Commission organizes the Sunset by the Lake Summer Concert Series at City Hall every summer (the 2020 series was cancelled due to covid-19).
The CAC also organizes Community Service Day, a citywide event involving many hundreds of community volunteers.
