Story

City of Atlanta Councilor Amir Farokhi offers his constituents the opportunity to choose where some funds are spent. This is done through a participatory budgeting process in a program he calls Downtown Decides. See here for the projects that were chosen: https://www.atlantadowntown.com/adid/areas-of-focus/capital-projects/downtown-decides. Below are photos of some that have already been implemented. 

I love this idea, and would love to see all city councilors in all cities do something like this. There is so much low-hanging-fruit that can make a safety and quality-of-life difference for people in their everyday lives. 

Bravo, Councilor Farokhi (whom, by the way, I first met at a Rolling Town Hall when he was originally running for City Councilor. We met at a red light on our bikes on the way home.)
