Show us your budget
Thank you for visiting MySpokaneBudget.org. The 2017 Program Budget proposal directs critical resources to your priorities to deliver a high level of service. Our budget philosophy is to be accountable and aligned to what matters most as we build a safer, stronger, smarter Spokane, and we need your help.
The Program Budget below is a working draft. It represents a commitment to live within our means while providing affordable services, and includes integrated approaches whenever possible to make your investment go further. You will see continued investments in police and fire services – both citizen priority areas – to meet changing needs. Investments in long-term street improvements and maintenance are again a major component as is the first major renovation of Riverfront Park in more than four decades. Greater emphasis has also been placed on supporting job and economic growth and decreasing homelessness.
Community input over several months guided development of this budget. Now we need your help again. We invite additional feedback as we refine the proposal, work with the City Council to finalize next year's budget and remain accountable to the community we all serve.
We are also looking for feedback to the 6-Year Capital Improvement Plan, which is available at right. It is the roadmap to larger strategic investments that help us deliver the best, most affordable City services.
Tell us what you think. The best outcomes are always driven by the best engagements.
