Another option would be not to produce a compromise slate of projects, but to provide feedback to the assemblies about what the other proposals are to allow them the chance to harmonize and find synergies.

Each individual assembly could then vote on whether to adopt the recommended changes, or stick with their original proposals.

There wouldn't be a slate, but there would be a two-stage process that would enable the assemblies to come up with a cohesive set of proposals. The proposals (perhaps limited in total number or total budget) could then be voted on individually.
