How would you spend over $90,000 to improve Vancouver’s West End?
As part of the follow-up to the West End Parking Strategy implemented in 2017, the City of Vancouver is launching a participatory budgeting pilot to distribute additional revenue collected through West End permit parking fees. The City made the commitment that this incremental revenue would be directed back into the West End community, and that the community would decide where the funds would be invested.
What is Participatory Budgeting?
Participatory budgeting is a process used in cities around the world to involve citizens in government spending decisions that impact or benefit them. Winning projects are adopted through a community vote and implemented with the support of government.
