If you have ideas about how to make life in the Dayton region better, this is your moment.

The Dayton Region Priority Development & Advocacy Committee — also known as “PDAC” — is looking for community or government-based proposals that will benefit the region.

It’s the start of an annual process that allows the Dayton Development Coalition and its allies to approach government with a unified voice in requests and lobbying efforts.

A questionnaire is available online at https://www.daytonregion.com/form/pdac , allowing project sponsors to submit information about their proposals.

All submissions must be received by Nov. 1, 2019 to be considered.

“PDAC seeks projects that benefit residents of the Dayton region, impact its quality of life, encourage business growth, and strengthen the community’s relationship with local military installations,” the coalition said in an announcement Wednesday.

The committee is looking for ideas in five areas, each of which will be evaluated by a review panel — defense; economic development; hospitals, health care and social services; quality of life; and transportation and government services.

The five panels will make recommendations to the full committee.

“The Dayton region’s PDAC process highlights the collaborative spirit of our community and the dedication of our leaders to advocating for the region’s future,” Doug Compton, Dayton city executive and commercial banking team lead for Fifth Third Bank and PDAC chair, said in the coalition release.
