Ideas Collection

Learn about participatory budgeting and how to submit your ideas in the meetings being held through the end of February. See below for our meeting schedule and submit your ideas on this screen.

Proposal Development

Throughout March and April, community members volunteering as Proposal Advocates review ideas for feasibility and prioritize projects for the ballot. They will take the ideas and develop them into detailed project proposals (budget, implementation details, and impact), with the help of County project managers.

Proposal Advocates will hold meetings to gather community input on the project proposals being developed.


Voting begins Tuesday August 2 through Wednesday August 10.


Anyone at least 12 years old who lives, works, goes to school or worships (attend mosque/church) in the unincorporated area of Fairwood, you can participate in THE BIG PB VOTE.
