What is Participatory Budgeting (PB)?
Greensboro Participatory Budgeting is a democratic process in which community members from all five City Council districts directly decide how to spend $500,000; $100,000 per district. The process works like this:
1. Residents brainstorm ideas for improvement.
2. Ideas are turned into proposals by budget delegates.
3. Residents vote for their favorite projects in their district.
4. Projects with the most votes gets funded.
