Dayton has a long history of citizen participation dating back more than 35 years when the Priority Board system took shape. Since then Dayton has gained national recognition for the process of gaining input from citizens. Elected officials and City administrators regularly seek input from the Priority Boards on opportunities and issues facing neighborhoods and the city overall. It has proven to be a very effective two-way communication system that benefits all.
The seven Priority Boards are: Downtown, Southeast, Northeast, FROC (Fair River Oaks Council), Northwest, Innerwest and Southwest. View a map of Priority Board areas and their neighborhoods.
