Creating ownership and genuine participation in city government by neighborhoods and residents through the allocation of city resources determined by community participants to inspire the improvement of quality of life.

Pending approval of the 2024 budget in November, there will be $1 million of the City budget designated for the public to decide how to spend these dollars to improve the quality of life of Pueblo residents and their neighbors. We want to hear your great idea—a bench, an amenity, something creative you’ve always wanted to implement in Pueblo. It’s your idea and your neighborhood!


  • Invest $ 1 Million
  • Engage residents across Pueblo neighborhoods 
  • Equitable access to resources 
  • Pilot of participatory budget
