Participatory budgeting (PB) is a real example of deliberative democracy (VÍGLIO, 2004; Avritzer 2000; Abers, 1998; SANTOS, 1998). To Avritzer (cited VÍGLIO, 2004), participatory budgeting concerns in a powerful opening to a decision by the state space in order to expand public participation in matters that directly cover the main benefits and the population itself. Also acquires the face of an important tool for urban planning. Aiding the performance of an urban environmental management, where work is geared to managing the city, one can think of an improvement for the city and its citizens, as well as for environmental quality involved. However, urban environmental management finds obstacles in his path, as shown in Batistela (2007). To this author one of their challenges are the interfaces between the instruments of environmental policy and urban policy. Is quoted thus in the National Environmental Policy Act (Law no. 6938/1981) and the City Statute (Law no. 10257/2001). In this paper we intend to present to higher junction of knowledge the experience of Porto Alegre - RS, as they say in Teixeira and Albuquerque, according to Mitchell (2007), being referenced by this experience have greater duration and contain national and international notoriety. The aim is above all to exploring the scope of the OP in the municipality of São Carlos, in the state of São Paulo, our object of study, so that it identifies the dimension of importance given to OP by householders and their respective degree of participation in recent years.
