Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and the New York City Council Announce Results of the 2016-2017 Participatory Budgeting Cycle

Over 102,000 New Yorkers voted to for locally-developed capital projects across the city

New York – Today, Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and the New York City Council announced the voting results and winning proposals of the 2016-2017 Participatory Budgeting cycle. During the voting period of March 25th through April 5th, 102,800 New Yorkers voted to allocate over $40 million in capital funding for locally-developed capital projects across 31 Council Districts in New York City.

“This year, we celebrate yet another successful cycle of Participatory Budgeting – this is democracy in action,” said Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito. “Again, I want to thank the thousands of New Yorkers across all five boroughs who participated in the 2017 Participatory Budgeting Vote Week. Thanks to you, over $40 million in capital funding will be provided for these projects within your communities, helping restore parks, improve our transit systems, create new learning opportunities in schools, and much more.”

This year, residents in participating districts were also able to vote online as well as the traditional submit paper ballots. New Yorkers cast, 30,414 online votes and 67,014 paper ballots in the 2016-2017 Participatory Budgeting cycle.

Ballots for the 2016-2017 Participatory Budgeting cycle were available in nine languages other than English—Spanish, Chinese, French, Arabic, French Creole, Korean, Russian, Polish, Greek, Yiddish, Urdu, Bengali—based on local demographics in participating districts. Every district featured digital voting stations at poll sites as well as pop-up mobile voting sites on commercial strips, in community centers and building lobbies using mobile electronic devices provided by Microsoft and Google.

Voting in Participatory Budgeting is open to all residents of participating districts 14 years of age and older. The sole requirement is a signed affidavit stating that the resident lives in the district, removing traditional obstacles to full civic participation such as youth, income status, English-language proficiency and citizenship status.

For the 2016-2017 cycle, 31 Council Members facilitated Participatory Budgeting in their districts. Below are the winning projects for each district:
