Participatory Budgeting Cycle 8 & Beyond

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a democratic process in which community members recommend to the City Council how to spend part of a public budget.

In 2012, the Vallejo City Council established the first city-wide PB process in the United States, where residents directly engaged with their local government to develop and recommend projects as part of the annual budget. Over the past six cycles, the City of Vallejo has allocated over $9.3 million to fund a total of 56 projects, while engaging over 20,000 residents of Vallejo.

The goals of Participatory Budgeting are:

  • Improve our city
  • Engage our community
  • Transform our democracy
  • Open up government

Currently, in our 7th Cycle, we're looking to reenvision the program and make it better for the community. Join the conversation and help us. Take part in the polls, idea-collection, subscribe, and more on this page. We look forward to hearing from you!
