Participatory Budgeting gets an upgrade – submit your idea online

by GWAPP on

Tonight is the last Participatory Budgeting neighborhood assembly being held in North Brooklyn. It’s at McCarren Park Rec Center on Lorimer St. from 6pm – 8pm. (There is one final meeting for the district this Saturday at the Wyckoff Community Center.) If you haven’t been able to make it to a meeting, fear not, you can now submit your suggestions online!

What’s really wonderful about this new system is that you can submit ideas, make comments on other people’s ideas, like other people’s ideas and see what’s coming thanks to last year’s PB money. How would you spend $1 million for your district? Share your idea — big, small, brilliant, silly! Deadline to submit ideas is November 3.
