Earlier this month, Hinton residents decided to award $30,000 towards the Happy Creek project submitted by the Hinton Mountain Bike Association.
In September, HMBA had submitted a proposal for Hinton's Participatory Budget. Hinton's amazing signature trail, Happy Creek, is going to need some major work done on all the bridges and wood features. This is not just a project that will benefit the mountain bikers, but it will benefit runners, walkers, hikers, and visitors who enjoy using this great trail!
Participatory Budgeting is a democratic process where community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget ($100,000). It is taxpayers working with local government to make budget decisions that affect their lives. It is a different way to manage public money that engages people and government.
