Sacramentans now can cast their votes to select which projects will be funded through the City’s Measure U Committee’s Participatory Budgeting Pilot Program.
A total of $1 million is available with $500,000 allocated to the North Area and $500,000 allocated to the South Area.
The winning projects will be funded in order according to the total number of votes received until no further funding is available. The City anticipates the implementation of the winning projects will begin in early 2023.
Projects under consideration cover a variety of community improvements and services, including: expanded mobile library services, a literacy program for youth, a basketball court, and support for neighborhood clean-up efforts.
Community members were invited to submit these ideas through an open submission process during April and May of this year. After receiving 550 ideas, residents, who were volunteering as proposal delegates, prioritized those ideas to decide which projects would appear on the North or South Area ballots.
To be eligible to vote, a resident must be 14 years of age or older and live in one of the following neighborhoods:
