The City of Wichita maintains a number of Citizen Advisory Boards and Commissions. The purpose of these groups is to pay specialized attention to certain areas affecting our community and to make recommendations to better inform City Council decisions. These groups range from Library operations, to urban planning, to Park activities, and much more. There are also six District Advisory Boards which make recommendations to City Council and City staff on a number of wide ranging issues.
Please take the time to look through the boards and commissions. Current vacancies are also listed and you are encouraged to apply. Even if there is no vacancy in a board you are interested in, you can still submit an application and it will be kept on file and reviewed when a position opens up. The decisions and recommendations made by these groups play a substantial role in our community and it is a great way to become involved.
