In 2012, the City of Vallejo made history by becoming the first U.S. municipality to approve participatory budgeting (PB) city-wide. PB engages all Vallejo residents to help decide how to spend a portion of the city budget.

In Year 1, Vallejo residents created and approved 12 public projects, from community gardens to youth scholarships to park rehabilitation. On March 6, the Office of the City Manager, City of Vallejo, released a summary report of Year 1 that addresses the background, participation, representation of Vallejo's diverse community, and outcomes. You can view or download the summary report by clicking here.

In Year 2, Vallejo residents created and approved 8 public projects, from housing to school bands to public art.

Now the City of Vallejo is in the middle of the 3rd year of PB - help make it a success! (Click here to view the Cycle 3 Rulebook)
