From Councilmember Amir Farokhi’s office:
“Atlanta has completed its first ever participatory budgeting program – Downtown Decides!
Beginning in December, we asked you to submit your best ideas on how to spend $1 million Downtown on transportation infrastructure. We received well over 100 proposals. 33 of them made the ballot and during the month of May, 3,479 of you who work, live, or study Downtown voted! With all that’s going on in the world, I think it’s a pretty special statement about our city and it’s desire to be civically engaged to have that kind of turnout.
So, which projects won? I’m thrilled to say that you voted to fund 17 projects — 17 great ideas that the Atlanta Department of Transportation is now charged with executing.”
