At last! Time to Vote on Your Voice, Your Choice

Seattle Dept of Neighborhoods- Your Voice, Your Choice: Parks & Streets is a participatory budgeting initiative in which Seattle residents democratically decide how to spend a portion of the City’s budget on small-scale park and street improvements. A total of $285,000 is set aside in each City Council District, and residents can cast their ballots for their top three choices in the district where they live, work, go to school, receive services, or volunteer. VOTE NOW!

Three of these are in our neighborhood:

5C. BROADVIEW: Walkway Improvements near Viewlands Elementary- Complete 60% of design for walkway improvements on 3rd Ave NW between NW 105th St & NW 107th St to allow pedestrians to walk near Viewlands Elementary and a bus stop.

  1. You have to click on the Vote button and then follow the prompts, and you will be asked to get a confirmation code sent to your cell phone. From the text message on your cell phone get the code, enter it, and you can go to the voting page. Select District 5 for the list of projects here. It does seem complex for a supposedly easy City of Seattle process.
