FYI: No participant in the Ward 2 process was required to cost their proposal themselves. City staff did that work as part of the PB process. It's quite easy for them to ballpark cost projects based on similar ones already completed in the city.

Costing was important to the whole 'budgeting' part of the exercise because it allowed residents to make an informed decision on the potential cost/beneftis of each project.

And Budgie, it's not sniping--dialogue like this is important. The Ward 2 process is apt to change next year (if it survives at all), and learning more about the Ward 1 process has been helpful to the various Ward 2 NAs because it gives us an idea of where we want/don't want to go with any tweaks.
