Help decide how to spend $2 million on park and street improvements in Seattle
Submit ideas beginning January 28 thru February 22
Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is again engaging community members to democratically decide how to spend $2 million of the City’s budget on small-scale park and street improvements. This is the third year of Your Voice, Your Choice (YVYC): Parks & Streets.
Beginning January 28 to February 22, community members can submit an idea online at seattle.gov/yvyc or in-person at any Seattle Public Library branch. Projects could include park benches, trail improvements, flashing beacons, and curb ramps to name a few. The only criteria are the ideas be physical improvements for Seattle’s parks or streets, benefit the public, and cost $90,000 or less.

Once ideas are submitted, volunteers will be recruited to turn the ideas into 8 – 10 proposals per council district. Then this July, everyone will have the opportunity to vote for the top projects within their district.
