Parks Are Essential: Budgeting to Reflect Austin’s Values
Every Summer, Austin has the opportunity to prioritize city assets like parks, transportation and housing through the City’s budgeting process. It is often said that “budgets are moral documents.” But how do budgets truly impact public amenities like parks, programming and the people who enjoy and rely on them?

Learn how you can use your voice to make sure parks get the funding they deserve and that Austin creates a budget that reflects our city’s values.
