The City of Sequim introduces The People’s Project!  A Participatory Budgeting process that will give Sequim area residents the opportunity to give their input into the City’s 2020 budget by voting on proposed projects.

In September 2017, the City held neighborhood visioning meetings to name neighborhoods and brainstorm projects needed for the community.  Several projects that fit within the scope of this program have been selected to be voted on by the public.  Voters will get to decide how up to $150,000 will be spent in the 2020 budget. 


The projects to be voted on are:

•    Pioneer Park Walking Path – Total Cost: $76,000

•    Festive Holiday Bells – Total Cost:  $50,600

•    Bigbelly Automated Trash & Recycling Stations – Total Cost:  $130,000

•    Pet Waste Stations – Total Cost:  $5,500

•    Water Stations in City Parks – Total Cost:  $62,800

Displays describing each of the projects will be exhibited at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 West Cedar Street.  Voters will be given coupons to cast their votes.  Everyone is welcome to participate, but the votes will be weighted depending on where the voter lives.  City residents will get three counts, Olympic Peninsula neighbors will get two counts, and visitors will get one count.


Voting Dates and Times:

Friday, May 3 – 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Saturday, May 4 – 9:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Monday, May 6 – 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Tuesday, May 7 – 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Voters are welcome to fill out a Dare to Dream card during the event and make suggestions for future projects.

For more information on the projects, please visit the City of Sequim website at https://sequimwa.gov or call (360) 683-4139.
