It’s Participatory Budgeting Vote Week from March 25 – April 2. It’s time to select the winning community ideas to be funded. City Council Member Brad Lander’s Participatory Budgeting (PB) ballot features 10 capital projects competing for $1.5 million and 8 programming projects competing for $50,000. You can vote for up to 5 capital project and up to 3 programming projects. The winning projects are funded by the council member in the coming fiscal year!
Local Project Highlight:
