How would YOU spend $1 million in the neighborhood?

Our City Councilmember Brad Lander's Participatory Budgeting process has begun! There is still time to submit ideas for improvements to the neighborhood. On the District Council 39 PB website you can post an idea, see what your neighbors are proposing, and support or comment on their ideas. The deadline is November 3rd. 

Through Participatory Budgeting, community members propose ideas and vote for how to spend at least $1,000,000 of the public budget in our Council District. If you have an idea about how things could work better in your community, share it on the map. Check out the guidelines to see what ideas can be funded. Your idea will be then reviewed, alongside all the others, based on its feasibility, the need it would address, and the number of people it would benefit. The top projects will be put on a ballot, and next April, all residents of the 39th Council District will be able vote on which to fund.

Go forth and make a real difference!
