Participatory Budgeting 2017



How would YOU spend $1,000,000 in our community?

voting_box.pngThis is your chance as a northern Manhattan resident to make your voice heard on how to improve our community with public funds. For the third year in a row, Council Member Levine has set aside $1 million to fund the most popular projects in our district. The coming vote represents the culmination of a yearlong process of public assemblies to hear ideas on what our community's needs are, and how to best address those needs. Through a public vote, we will now decide which proposals to fund. Read on to see how and where to vote!
