Back in October I wrote about attending a Participatory Budgeting planning meeting, and suggesting a few improvements in Brad Lander’s district. Well, the projects have been hashed out, and the voting is open!
(I’m sad to say my favorite project – a network of bike corrals – didn’t make the cut – but that’s ok. Maybe next year.)
Brooklyn is a hotbed for Participatory Budgeting: 5 of the 10 Council Districts in the program are in our borough. Click below to see interactive maps of the projects vying for a slice of $1 million in each.
From the options on Brad Lander’s ballot, I’ll be voting for the two street-safety options ($300,000 each), the bus signs ($240,000), and the solar firehouse ($145,000).
Voting closes on Sunday, so be sure to carve out some time this weekend to cast your ballot.
