Participatory Budgeting Vote Going on Through April 6

Through Participatory Budgeting, community members propose ideas and vote for how to spend at least $1,000,000 of the public budget in a Council District. From March 30th through April 6th, anyone who is a resident of the Council District and at least 16 years old will be able vote on which projects to fund.

Brooklyn community members came together on Wednesday, March 19 for the second annual Participatory Budgeting Project Expo in the 33rd Council District. The Expo was an opportunity for residents of the 33rd District — which includes the neighborhoods of DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights, Greenpoint, Boerum Hill and parts of Williamsburg and Bedford–Stuyvesant — to get to know more about the capital improvement projects that they will be voting on this year. Visit Council Member Stephen Levin’s website for more information about the district’s Participatory Budgeting 2014 projects, and click here to watch videos about each of them.
