We hope you’ll join us in taking part in a unique opportunity in our community, participatory budgeting, which puts budget decisions about important neighborhood projects directly in the hands of the people those decisions will impact most – us.
Participatory budgeting is our chance to get our community’s needs addressed.
There are many great projects on the ballot this year, all cooked up by local residents – subway station improvements, park projects, school facilities, and traffic safety upgrades. City Council Member Brad Lander has pledged $1.5 in City capital funding –our taxpayer dollars, remember – to the projects that get the most votes.
Want to vote on which projects will be funded? Please click here to pledge to participate and then click here for a list of voting locations and times.
If you are not sure if you are in Brad Lander’s district, enter your address on his website.
In order to get the resources we need to continue to improve our community, we need to make our voices heard in this process.
Can I count on you to join me to make our community’s voice heard?
Please click here to pledge to vote and let our City Council Member know that we as a community are excited and ready to take advantage of this opportunity. Please feel free to get in contact with me with any questions about the process. And don’t forget to pledge to vote.
