Find out more about participatory budgeting which allocates $1 Million to projects we vote on. Help The Children’s School get funding for much needed work through this process !
“What does your neighborhood need? An improved park? Safer streets? New school technology? In participatory budgeting, you give your ideas and City Councilmember Brad Lander has set aside $1 million to fund them. And your votes will decide which projects get funded. Last year, over 3,000 district residents participated and seven great projects received funding.” The participatory budgeting neighborhood assemblies are just around the corner. Give your ideas for how to spend $1 million on projects in our community.
We have attached a flyer for that meeting. Also, take a look at the video below about last year’s participatory budgeting process.
These assemblies provide a space where residents can share project ideas that can turn into full on capital projects to improve their neighborhoods. Check Brad Lander’s Participatory Budgeting Site for more information and to RSVP.
The first meeting is September 24th, 6:30 PM, Carroll Gardens Library, 396 Clinton St. (at Union St.)
