PARTICIPATORY BUDGETING UPDATE
Your District. Your Ideas. Your Vote.
Get Ready to Get Out the Vote
Our office is in the final stretch working with departments to finalize and translate the ballot for you-our district residents -to vote on which Participatory Budgeting projects will be funded. We will have on-line voting and in person at 3 locations. We’ll send out an e-mail blast shortly with details as well have the link to vote in next month’s newsletter.
Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a completely community driven process where D7 residents create ideas for projects, a Neighborhood Council made up residents from different neighborhoods in District 7 reviewed and ranked proposals, and residents will vote on which projects will be funded. This year proposals were focused on pedestrian safety, neighborhood services, culture, school, education, youth and small businesses.
