Engage Evanston Results
The FY 2013 Budget process marks the fourth consecutive budget year in which the City has facilitated a community budget process. In addition, the FY 2013 Budget process represents the second year of the City’s Engage Evanston initiative, which is an on-going effort to encourage dialogue and discussion among residents regarding community priorities and budgetary challenges. As part of the Engage Evanston initiative, residents were encouraged to share their budget-related ideas, comments and suggestions with the City through a variety of communication channels including:
• On the web: www.cityofevanston.org/budget
• By mail: City Manager’s Office, 2100 Ridge Ave., Evanston, IL 60201
• By email at firstname.lastname@example.org
• By calling 3-1-1
• On Facebook at www.facebook.com/CityofEvanston
• On Twitter at www.twitter.com/CityofEvanston
Residents also had the opportunity to provide budget ideas and feedback in-person during the Citizen Budget Input Session and the Community Outreach Event. During the Community Outreach Event, City staff was available to interact with individuals in the community and discuss budget-related comments and ideas at various locations throughout Evanston. In total, City staff interacted with approximately 150 residents during the Community Outreach event.
Budget ideas received during the budget outreach initiative can be viewed on the Engage Evanston webpage by clicking here.
The staff responses to resident budget comments are available for viewing here.
Residents are encouraged to continue submitting their budget-related ideas, comments, suggestions and feedback throughout the FY 2013 Budget process using any of the communication channels listed above.
