The 2022 Proposed Budget is now available for your review. An important part of the budget process is hearing from you, Wheat Ridge residents, about the priorities, programs and services that are most important to you. Consider what matters to you and participate in the activities below.

  • Give Us Your Ideas! - In the first tab below, we are looking for your ideas on how we can best address specific areas that were identified as opportunities for improvement in this year's Resident Survey, such as City Attractiveness and Youth Programming. Let us know what you're thinking so we can dedicate the best resources.
  • Charges for Recreation Services - Many of our recreation services, such as use of recreation centers, programs, camps and sports leagues, require that the participant pay a fee to subsidize the cost of the service. To balance rising labor and supply costs, and considering that fees have not increased in several years, we are considering modest facility use fee increases in 2022. We are asking you to click on the second tab below to learn more about the City's cost recovery model, check out the video where Parks and Recreation Director Karen O'Donnell explains the service philosophy and cost recovery continuum. Then, review the continuum and take the survey below to share your thoughts.
  • Questions & Comments - If you have a general question or comment, feel free to leave it in the Questions box in the third tab below and we'll get back to you. Is there an "Idea" topic we missed? Let us know! Your opinions are very important to us and we are grateful for your participation in this process.

Many of you recently contributed feedback though different community engagement efforts, such as the Let’s Talk Resident Engagement Program, the Resident Survey, and Sustainable Wheat Ridge. Thank you for taking the time to provide your thoughts. Your input has been taken into consideration while constructing the 2022 budget.

To check out the 2022 Proposed Budget, look at the Budget in Brief in the Helpful Documents section of this page. If you are a real budget fan, check out the full budget document. In addition to giving feedback here, you can provide feedback to City Council at the budget presentation on September 20 either online, virtually or in person at the meeting.
