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.
