Community Engagement

I am inviting District 8 residents’ to provide their input on how to spend $56,400 in the community. The funds will be allocated using the Participatory Budgeting model that was used last year’s District 8 Participatory Budget vote. The benefits of this process are that it encourages great ideas to come forward from local groups, builds community support and collaboration, and gives local residents a direct say in how they want the District 8 capital funds spent.

On PB vote night everyone is encouraged (including children!), come and help choose projects that will help build a stronger community. This is a more engaging and different way to make decisions about how to spend public money in our neighborhood.

Community members, like YOU, will propose projects and/or make recommendations on how to spend this money.
