The District Advisory Boards (DABs) have marked an era in citizen participation for the City of Wichita. Each eleven-member board is appointed by the City Council and work directly with the City Council Member in the district to provide citizen input and hear resident concerns at the monthly meetings.
The DABs provide feedback and input on City policies, programs and projects. DABs assist with issues ranging from large items, such as the City operating budget, to specific zoning cases impacting a neighborhood.
DABs meet in the evenings to provide easy access to local government for citizens. In addition, DABs develop goals and special projects to directly serve the citizens in the district.
