Participatory Budgeting Program

Participatory Budget

On March 1, 2019 through April 1, 2019 The Township of Maplewood allowed community members, local civic groups, school parent organizations, and non-profit organizations based in Maplewood to submit their ideas for “one-time projects” with “one time expenditures” that address a community need and provide a community benefit. A Participatory Budget Committee, which included Township Committee Members, Chief Finance Officer, Engineer, Business Administrator, and Public Works Director reviewed these proposals to see if they met the established criteria. $50,000 has been allocated from the Township’s capital budget for the program.
