Historic Opportunity on the $500 Million Buffalo Budget

For the first time in city history residents are invited to influence the $500 Million Dollar Budget before it’s created!

On January 16th the Buffalo Common Council is hosting the first ever City Budget Proposal Day! At the public hearing, residents are invited to advocate for how the $500 Million dollar city budget should be spent. This is the first time in city history where the public has been invited to influence the budget before it's created!

As an advocate for Participatory Budgeting, the Clean Air Coalition of WNY sees the hearing as a historic opportunity. The hearing will allow residents to advance a more democratic budget process, and is a real opportunity for city residents to set the spending priorities for the 2018-2019 City Budget. Whether it's schools, roads, public safety, housing, parks, or neighborhood services, local issues are impacted by our public budget.

To celebrate this historic moment and encourage residents to take advantage of the public hearing, the Clean Air Coalition of WNY will be hosting a press conference to announce the hearing. We will be joined by other community organizations including, PUSH Buffalo, Voice Buffalo, Coalition for Economic Justice, Open Buffalo, Partnership for Public Good, and the Fruit Belt Community Land Trust.

The press conference will take place Monday January 15th, 1pm at the PUSH Grant St Neighborhood Center - 271 Grant St. Community leaders will be available for interviews.
