2020 Budget: Your Priorities

Tell us your priorities for the 2020 budget

In 2018, the City began to use a new and unique process to develop the City's budget called PPI (Priorities, Performance and Investments).

We start by listening to our community to learn their highest priorities. We then continually evaluate our performance in each of the identified areas. Finally, we use our actual performance to determine how we should adjust our investments to achieve the community's vision (as defined in the Olympia's Comprehensive Plan).

As we begin to develop the City budget for 2020, we know there may be some difficult decisions to make. So we need to hear from you: What are your top priorities?

Focus Area Surveys

We've created individual surveys (below) for each of Olympia's focus areas:

  • Community, Safety & Health
  • Downtown
  • Economy
  • Environment
  • Neighborhoods

Complete any or all of them to help us understand what elements of our community vision are most important to you.

Learn more and stay informed

Check out the News Feed below to get the latest updates, learn more about the process and see what the PPI budget cycle has already accomplished.
