The Town Buildings and Facilities Committee has an opening for a member with a term ending May 31, 2011. The committee evaluates the condition and usefulness of existing municipal facilities and develops a plan outlining the nature of renovations and changes.

The Jamestown Affordable Housing Committee seeks a member for a one-year term ending May 31, 2010. This committee acts in an advisory capacity to the Town Council on issues relating to housing. Members sit as a review committee for proposed Housing Trust Fund projects, and conduct studies and analyses of the current housing conditions in Jamestown, to be used as part of the Comprehensive Plan.
