Below are the results from the Community Choices – Capital projects vote that took place earlier this summer. Voters were asked to select their favourite ideas and the projects with the most votes will be awarded the funding requested until that ward's budget is drawn down. Each project had to get at least 10% of the total eligible vote to receive funding. Where full funds were not allocated in a Ward, they will be carried forward and added to the funds for the 2nd round which will open this Autumn.
