Your Voice, Your Choice

Updated: November 8, 2019

Your Voice, Your Choice: Parks & Streets is a participatory budgeting initiative in which Seattle residents decide how to spend a portion of the City's budget on small-scale park and street improvements. This program is a partnership between the Department of Neighborhoods (DON), Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), and Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR).

DON leads the program, collects ideas, evaluates submittals, and hosts the voting process. Once votes are tallied, and projects awarded, SPR funds and implements the park improvement projects and SDOT funds and implements the small-scale street improvement projects.

You can learn more about DON's role on the DON Your Voice, Your Choice program webpage. SDOT's project implementation webpage will host all project updates (including SPR projects), selectable by Council District, for tracking the status of the winning projects. The status of SPR projects can also be followed from this webpage.
