107-01-2021 - 08-07-2021
Idea collection phase
Residents are invited to share ideas and potential projects that could be implemented within the ward. Residents are also encouraged to volunteer to help take these ideas and turn them into full project proposals for the ballot.
208-09-2021 - 10-16-2021
Volunteers, called community representatives, co-create full project proposals for the ballot by:
- Narrowing down the initial list of ideas based on if the idea is eligible (infrastructure on public land) and feasible
- Research project details and learn more about the specifics of what the community needs
- Work with ward staff and city agency staff to determine costs and additional project details

Anyone who lives in the ward and is 14 years of age or older can vote.
