The City of Manhattan Beach is asking you to share your priorities for the future of our community by taking this quick survey about the quality of life in Manhattan Beach. We want to know what is important to YOU so that we can continue to provide the best services possible.
The feedback you provide here will be shared with the City Council as they make decisions about the City’s upcoming 2018-2020 budget.
In 2016, the City transitioned to a two-year budget cycle, which allows for more long-range planning and a chance to deepen the focus on the large-scale Capital Improvements Program (CIP). The City Council will review the proposed budgets for fiscal years (FY) 2018-2019 and 2019-2020. After their review process, they will adopt the FY 2018-2019 budget and approve the 2019-2020 budget, which will be reviewed again and formally adopted the following year.
As in previous years, the City will use the Pillars of Success from the Manhattan Beach Strategic Plan to help shape the budget, which are:
- Strong Governance that Values Meaningful Resident Engagement
- Excellent City Services Provided by an Aligned and Committed Workforce
- Financial Sustainability
- Environmental Stewardship
- Effective Physical Asset Management
- Economic Vitality
In addition to providing input through this survey, residents are invited to attend the Community Budget Social and provide feedback in person.
