This process will provide residents in their districts with an opportunity to vote on how that money will be spent. While this is a pilot, our goal is to use the lessons learned to expand participatory budgeting as a county-wide process.
For this community-led initiative, residents of district 6 and 8 will have an opportunity to have a say in a participatory budgeting initiative sponsored by Louisville Metro Government.
Opportunities for input occur at every step:
brainstorm ideas that improve the community
develop the ideas that were submitted into project proposals
vote for the best proposals among these community-led ideas
