Participatory Budgeting in District 35

Dear neighbors,

Cycle 7 of the Participatory Budgeting process is now underway!

You, the residents of this district who I believe are the most diverse and creative in the city, will decide how to spend $1 million of public funds in our community. Come to an assembly or public meeting nearest you on one of the following days: Wednesday, October 4 at Willoughby Senior Center or the Clinton Hill Public Library; Thursday, October 5 at Medgar Evers College; or Friday, October 6 at the Brooklyn Public Library at Grand Army Plaza.

Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a public process where residents lead discussions, propose projects, and then vote to decide which improvements to parks, schools, libraries, and streets should be funded. Last year one school was funded for safer routes, while another was funded for technology upgrades.

If you cannot attend these assemblies, you can submit your project ideas right now online at: http://ideas.pbnyc.org/page/about. The deadline for ideas is October 13.

Everyone in the district who is at least 14 years old is eligible to participate and vote.
Kindly RSVP by contacting Darrell Oliver, at 718.260.9191. I hope you’ll attend to help improve our community. I look forward to your participation. PB Kick offPB Kick off spanish
