The Chicago Park District Office of Budget and Management is responsible for the oversight and coordination of the annual operating budget, inviting public input related to the recommended budget, and submitting the budget for adoption by the Chicago Park District Board of Commissioners. As part of the budget process, the District provides a number of opportunities for the public to provide input related to the budget - see the list of events below. In addition, a Public Hearing on the recommended budget is held where the Superintendent presents the recommended budget to the Chicago Park District Board of Commissioners. The Board of Commissioners votes on adoption of the Annual Budget Appropriation at a monthly Board meeting. Throughout this process, the District welcomes public feedback and ideas online through the Budget Ideas Submission form below.
