Thank you to those who have provided comments and feedback on the City's 2023-24 Biennnium Budget. Policy priorities include:

  • Reduce Carbon Footprint
  • Grow Economic Opportunity
  • Improve Community Safety and Wellbeing
  • Build and Maintain Exceptional Public Spaces and Places
  • Improve Equity and Inclusion

Vancouver's City Manager will use community feedback to help inform the draft process. The proposed budget will be published on October 1 and presented to the City Council on Oct. 10. Additional details will be added to this page soon.

The City of Vancouver conducted its biennial community survey between Aug. 3 and Aug. 9. We look forward to sharing results later in September. The survey will inform the City Manager’s Proposed Budget and provide residents with an opportunity to tell the City their opinions about livability, city services and community priorities.

The City contracted with DHM Research, a northwest-based research firm to help develop and conduct the survey. The survey was offered in English, Spanish, Russian, and Vietnamese to ensure individuals could take the survey in their preferred language.

The City conducts a community survey approximately every two years. Review the Frequently Asked Questions to learn more about how the survey was conducted, including data collection, methodology, and more.

The City of Vancouver budgets on a biennial basis, beginning on odd numbered years (i.e., 2023-2024).

The budget process assigns resources to the goals, objectives, and community priorities set by the City Council. New programs are added based on policy priorities.

According to the City Charter, the City Manager prepares and submits a biennial operating budget and capital improvement program budget for consideration and adoption by the City Council.
