The Downtown Advisory Board (DAB) consists of 11 voting citizens and two non-voting citizens. All citizens are appointed by City Council to serve up to 2 three year terms.
The DAB serves two functions, 1.) a citizen advisory board to make recommendations on Downtown Urban Renewal District projects and expenses, and 2.) the Downtown Parking Board. We are only dealing with Urban Renewal on this page. To know more about downtown parking – visit the Downtown Parking District page.
