MEASURE U PARTICIPATORY BUDGETING PILOT PROGRAM

The City of Sacramento's Measure U Committee is launching a Participatory Budgeting Pilot Program in which residents will decide directly how to spend up to $1 million in Measure U funds. 

Participatory budgeting is a process in which community members directly decide how to spend a portion of the City budget. While any City resident can submit an idea, the ideas that will be prioritized for proposal development and voting must be located in or serve the residents of focus neighborhoods in North or South Sacramento.

To learn more about the pilot program, register for an upcoming information session, and more, visit the Participatory Budgeting Pilot Program website.

dixieanne clean & green alleys

Sidewalks, alleys, parks and trails throughout the City of Sacramento will become cleaner, greener and more beautiful with a $16 million boost from a new Clean California grants announced by Governor Gavin Newsom in March. The five approved projects chosen for the Caltrans grants include alley cleanup and beautification in North Sacramento's Dixieanne neighborhood; art installations and new public spaces along Florin Road; funding for public art along the planned Del Rio Trail; improvements to the Robert Matsui Park along the Sacramento River; and new sidewalks, shade trees and other amenities that will make it easier and safer to walk for students at Ethel Phillips Elementary School.

One of the largest awards, $4.86 million, will go to the Dixieanne Clean & Green Alleys project in North Sacramento. More than 3,000 linear feet of unpaved alleys will be cleared, paved and lined with trees.
