Community conversations, facilitated by our partner CBOs and the CEC, will be held throughout the city to brainstorm ideas for expense projects based on provided criteria and needs. Residents can also propose ideas and projects online. These sessions include familiarization with the City budget, discussion and deliberation about community needs, and problems solving that results in substantive project ideas that can be considered for the final ballot.

Project Evaluation and Vetting
Borough Advisory Committees, residents selected to represent their communities, review and evaluate projects that come out of the idea generation phase. Using criteria developed to ensure equity, need, and feasibility the committees will work together to determine which projects meet the criteria and will be further developed into proposals that can be implemented. An open call will be conducted inviting organizations to apply to implement projects as needed. Ballots are created and translated into multiple languages.
