The City of Pittsburgh is hosting deliberative forums on the Capital Budget to provide a more robust way for residents to share ideas on 2017 budget priorities. At these forums, neighbors will have a chance to learn about the budget and add community voices to the budgeting process as they engage with each other, community leaders, and city officials. Forums are open to every resident of Pittsburgh.
