The next round kicks off tonight with a meeting at the Carroll Gardens Library. From Council Member Lander's office:
If you had $1 million to spend on projects in your neighborhood, what would you do? Buy technology for a local school? Create public art? Expand the sidewalk at a dangerous intersection?
Give us your ideas at tonight's Participatory Budgeting Neighborhood Assembly at the Carroll Gardens Library. Here are the details:
After collecting ideas from area residents, volunteers will work to turn them into projects. In the spring, we will have a vote to decide which projects receive funding. Last year, the seven ideas with the most votes were funded, including outfitting a library room to host community meetings and performances; renovating paths and bringing more trash cans to Prospect Park; and a new community composting system that will take food scraps from our Greenmarkets.
Your idea could be one of this year's winners. I hope you can be there tonight.
