Agree completely. I submitted three ideas that I couldn't and wouldn't have submitted if I'd had to approach various city staff to get quotes. Without price tags attached, the focus becomes what the community truly wants and values, without second guessing about whether certain neighbourhoods and public spaces are 'worth it'. Also, let's face it, most people can probably guess which projects are likely to be bigger ticket items vs. low hanging fruit like park benches.

Sacrificing some of the 'budgeting' aspect of the process made it more participatory for people like me who aren't part of an established community organization with the capacity for putting together formal costed proposals.
