How does PB work in Cambridge? What happens when?


The 2020 PB cycle will run from September-December 2020 and include the following key phases:

  • Community members brainstorm and submit IDEAS about how to spend $500,000 of the City's FY21 Budget on capital projects to improve Cambridge (September 1-September 30, 2020)
  • Volunteer Budget Delegates research and prioritize ideas, ultimately developing final PROPOSALS for the PB Ballot (October-December 2020)
  • City staff vet proposals for FEASIBILITY and COST (November 2020)
  • Residents VOTE on which projects they’d like the City to fund (December 2020)
  • RESULTS are announced and winning projects are included in the City’s FY22 capital budget (December 2020 - January 2021)
  • Winning projects are IMPLEMENTED (July 2021 onward)
