It’s not just a rhetorical question – the City is asking us to suggest projects to improve our community and we will get a chance to vote on which ones should be included in the City budget. It is a new way of making decisions about how to use public money called Participatory Budgeting, now in its second year. If you would like to learn how to weigh in, check out one of these informational sessions in our area:
Tuesday, Sepatember 9th 5:30 pm at Union Settlement (237 E 104 Street)
Monday, September 15th at 5:30 pm at the Jonson Community Center (1833 Lexington Ave)
