The project is being called - Our City. Our Budget. Our Future. It is the first of its size and scope for Calgary. The process includes plans to involve citizens, employees and Council in three phases over the next four months.
We need to hear from as many Calgarians as possible. What City services do they value? What are their priorities? What is the best way to allocate the money available? What would they put in The City's budget? What trade-offs are they prepared to make to create the future we all want?
All the input will be given to Council and Administration in June and will be considered in the development of the business plans and budgets for the next three years. Setting priorities for the 2012-2014 budget is the first step in shaping a sustainable future for Calgary.
Community Workshops will kick off the project beginning February 23 and EVERYONE is welcome. These sessions will be asking participants to provide input on the engagement process, identify values and interests related to engagement and help identify measures for success. Choose a time and location that works for you.
