Another Participatory Budgeting cycle has started. With $1 million to allocate toward community projects, residents in my district can submit ideas on what they want to see in the neighborhood, and ultimately vote on the ones that will most improve the community. Participatory Budgeting can fund projects through the city’s capital budget ranging from park upgrades and school improvements to transportation innovations, and more. My office will be hosting several Neighborhood Assemblies in the coming weeks to explain the process and collect project ideas, which you can start submitting now. I hope to see you there.
