Propose A Project

What Kind of Projects Can Be Proposed?

Participatory budgeting focuses on Capital projects.

Capital funds are used to pay for physical infrastructure - for “bricks and mortar” projects. For the time being, Participatory Budgeting only deals with Capital money. That means community members can propose projects like improvements to schools, parks, libraries, public housing, and other public or community spaces.

Project submissions are only open over the Summer and Fall as volunteers from the community who particpate as Delegates will be spending the Winter turning your proposals into projects for the ballot.

The deadline for submission is Octoober 31, 2017.

Please provide your street address and zipcode.
Participation as budget delegates is limited to residents of the district.

You must be 11 or older in order to vote.

The project must qualify as:
1) physical infrastructure,
2) having a useful life of at least five years
3) and cost between $35,000 and $500,000.

The project must be on public property.
