The City Neighborhood Council and I will co-host a forum on Tuesday, January 27 about how participatory budgeting has worked in other cities, and discuss how it could work here in Seattle. It’s scheduled from 6-8 p.m. in the Bertha Knight Landes Room in City Hall.
Participatory budgeting is a flexible tool that’s worked in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. It can be used for budgets at a district level, citywide or for specific groups; Boston let city youth as young as age 12 decide how to spend $1 million in city funds.
Food and beverages will be provided.
Come find out more, and tell us how participatory budgeting could work in Seattle!
