Empower of Eau Claire Kick Off Event

The City of Eau Claire is excited to announce “Empower Eau Claire”, the first Participatory Budgeting program by a city in the state of Wisconsin. Participatory Budgeting is a democratic process that gives residents the power to directly decide how to spend part of the City’s budget on community projects that will impact their lives.

At this event residents can learn about the how the program works, how to start forming project ideas, and how to volunteer. The process begins this Fall by informing the public and recruiting volunteers, then collecting the public’s ideas to develop into real proposals, and finally, selecting the winning projects through a city-wide vote in Spring 2022.
