Your Voice, Your Choice (YVYC) is a participatory budgeting initiative of Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods that allows community members democratically decide how to spend a portion of the City's budget on small-scale park and street improvements. Our project provides YVYC management team a one-stop map-based dashboard to help them escalate from exclusively manual operation to a flexible combination of both online and offline operations. With dramatically reduced workload and accelerated decision-making process, they can concentrate more on inter-departmental corporation and quality assurance. Our project also encourages democratic participation by offering community members a much easier access to YVYC.
