Participatory Budgeting is a program in which district residents participate directly in the city budgeting process by deciding how to spend a $1,000,000 or more per district in city funds. These funds can go towards capital projects in our parks, schools, or roads — or wherever else the residents of your district decide. Below are four of the projects up for vote directly affecting our neighborhood.
