Over at Pedal Fort Collins, our partner and contributor Meg Dunn has written a great article about the City’s upcoming budget process, which they call “Budgeting for Outcomes”.
I encourage you to check it out and to follow her blog for a deeper dive, but the short version is the city breaks down budget conversations into 7 categories, one of which is transportation.
Even outside of transportation there are other offers and issues that affect road safety and which we would like to see prioritized. But as a start, I want to share a short list of offers that are up for consideration, to be either supported or not supported by council this fall.
at YGR Live on July 28th, we’ll be featuring a guest from the city who can answer question and advise us how to make our voice heard in the process. BFC will be sending out a poll in our August newsletter that will inform our recommendation to council.
Heres the transportation budget offer document: its a pretty heavy lift
Here’s the home page for the BFO process
