FEATUREDGetting Local Governance Right

The case for rethinking advisory boards

When done right, citizens’ advisory boards can provide local leaders with insightful feedback. Unfortunately, across many domains, citizens’ advisory boards are granted far more influence over local decisionmaking in areas like housing, transportation and budgeting than is appropriate. Advisory boards are very often wildly unrepresentative of their communities, and it’s time to rethink their role.
