PB in Vallejo

This Rulebook was developed by the Steering Committee and City Staff in July-August 2013, with assistance from the City's consultant The Participatory Budgeting Project (PBP). While participatory budgeting is inspired by experiences elsewhere, we want our PB process to reflect the special characteristics of our community's needs, issues, and interests.  The City Council adopted the 2013-2014 Rulebook on August 27, 2013.

PB Worldwide

Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a democratic process that was first developed in Brazil in 1989 and is now practiced in over 1,500 cities around the world. In these cities, PB allows community members to decide how to spend part of a public budget. Though each PB initiative looks different, the process generally involves several months of public participation in meetings, discussions, and voting, allowing the public has time to make wise decisions.
