The City of Sequim is happy to introduce a new opportunity for Sequim area residents to give their input into the City’s 2020 budget through The People’s Project! A Participatory Budgeting process.
In September 2017, the City held neighborhood visioning meetings to name neighborhoods and brainstorm projects needed in the community. Several projects that fit within the scope of this program have been selected to be voted on by the public. You get to decide directly how to use up to $150,000 that will be spent in 2020 to improve the City.
How It Works
Displays describing each project will be exhibited at the Sequim Civic Center. Voters will be given coupons up to $150,000 to vote on how the money should be spent.
Voting is open to everyone, but the votes will be weighted depending on where the voter lives. City residents will get three counts, county neighbors will get two, and visitors will get one.
Voting Days and Times
Friday, May 3—5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 4—9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Monday, May 6—7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
