2018 Winning Participatory Budget Projects

In 2018, nearly 2,100 District 7 residents voted on how to spend more $1 million of their own tax dollars right here in upper Manhattan! The proposals selected by residents will help expand educational opportunities and enhance quality of life for all. Thanks to the many volunteers who spent the last year creating project proposals, organizing neighborhood meetings, and reaching out to members of our community. Without you, we could not have enjoyed another successful year of participatory budgeting.
