Phase 2: Project Development

Project Development for 2020 Your Voice, Your Choice will take place in the Spring.

In Project Development, community members take the ideas submitted during the Idea Collection phase and prioritize them to 8-10 ideas per Council District. Project Development scores are collected and a map of all project ideas is made available. Scores are submitted online or in-person at a Seattle Public Library branch or various public outreach events.

  • There will be opportunities to participate in Project Development meetings in each Council District. Participants will be responsible for evaluating the project ideas that are submitted and give each project numerical ratings.
  • Each Project Development meeting will be supported by Your Voice, Your Choice staff who will ensure that community members have the necessary resources and tools to evaluate projects.
  • Anyone can participate in Project Development if they live, work, go to school, receive services, volunteer, or have a connection to the City of Seattle.
  • Project lists will be divided geographically within Council Districts. We will provide information in advance on which lists will be discussed at which meetings.
