Budget Delegates are volunteers who work in the fall to research, evaluate, and prioritize the project ideas submitted by community members over the summer. Budget Delegates ultimately develop the final project proposals for the annual PB vote in December. They do this through research, community assessments, and site visits, as well as through consultations with City staff regarding project feasibility and cost. Budget Delegates evaluate submitted ideas on three main criteria: need, impact, and feasibility.
During the third PB process, 60+ Budget Delegates worked in 5 committees to narrow down 548 submitted ideas into 20 final project proposals for the ballot. 7 of those projects won funding.
We are currently recruiting Budget Delegates for August 2017, so please click here to learn more and sign up!
