Your Voice Your Choice Project Update
Excerpted from Your Voice Your Choice (YVYC):
In February, we were able to gather nearly 900 project ideas for improving parks and streets from all over the city. This far surpassed our expectations and illuminated the power and benefits of inviting community participation in the City budgeting process. Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit their ideas and to all our community partners who helped in getting the word out!
In March, we began the project development phase of the program. Teams of volunteers in each council district evaluated feasible project ideas based on impact and need and eventually narrowed the field to 10 great projects ideas per district. Thank you to the 267 community members who volunteered their time and energy to make this happen.
