What does Participatory Budgeting look like? See some 2016 photos here.
Toronto is hosting a three-year Participatory Budgeting (PB) pilot in three areas of Toronto: Ward 33, and the two neighbourhoods of Oakridge (Ward 35) and Rustic (Ward 12). The pilot will help City Council decide what PB in Toronto might look like in the future.
PB invites residents to propose and vote on projects to improve their neighbourhoods. The money for the winning projects has already been set aside by the City. Anyone from the community can propose and discuss ideas, and anyone 14 years or older who lives in Rustic, Oakridge or Ward 33 can vote.
In the past two years, over 1,300 residents have cast votes and selected 13 projects worth $1,165,000 in total. See the neighbourhood pages for the list of projects that are improving parks and streets so far. What will happen in 2017 and beyond?
