Although the San Diego City Council approved the 2012-2013 budget in June, our budget work continues!
On Wednesday, July 25, from 9am-12pm at City Hall there is an excellent opportunity to learn more about how the city prioritizes and plans infrastructure projects – and proposed changes to enhance community participation.
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is how the city plans for infrastructure (like streetlights, skate parks and libraries) in the neighborhoods we live in. On the 25th, the Budget and Finance Committee will discuss two proposals about allowing greater community input on the program and improving the way infrastructure projects are prioritized. This meeting will also include information on how the process works (for example, how a project ends up being a project). The meeting will be at City Hall on the 12th floor. The address is 202 C Street in downtown San Diego.
This meeting is the first opportunity for the public to hear how the city plans to change the Capital Improvement Program. A vote to finalize the changes is expected this fall.
Please forward this email and invite friends, family members, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone else who would be interested in learning more about how decisions are made on important neighborhood projects like sidewalks and streetlights.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Trinh Le, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 619-584-5744 ext 24.
