You can have a say in the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund

The Neighborhood Park and Street Fund provides funds annually to neighborhoods for small-scale improvements to streets and parks. In the past, the Neighborhood District Councils reviewed proposed applications and selected three projects to forward to Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) and Seattle Parks and Recreation (Parks) for feasibility and cost analysis. District Councils, Parks, and SDOT then recommended the projects for funding, and the mayor made the final decision. As of 2017, this program was been folded into the City of Seattle's Participatory Budgeting.  Process City Council, and community members will be voting in June on projects within their city council district. Details may be found at

The deadline for submissions has passed, but any community member may apply to be on the project development teams who transform the ideas into solid projects for voting within their city council district. To apply, fill out the form found after you click “Learn more” under Project Development on the website.

All who live, work, go to school, receive services, volunteer, or have a connection to the City of Seattle will be eligible to vote once during June. Voting will take place on multiple days, locations, and formats, which may include schools, community centers, and digital/online voting.


A list of the ideas submitted this year can be found under Idea Collection on the website. To see the 2016 awarded projects list, go to
