Since August we have been conducting a historical process called Participatory Budgeting. Your neighbors have diligently been developing ideas, getting them vetted by City Staff and preparing them for all Ninth District residents over 14 to now vote on.
Voting kicks off this Saturday from 10am-2pm at Houghton Park, with all 11 projects being presented for your review. To give you an idea of what type of projects you can expect, they range from new security cameras to a new public computer lab.
All of the projects, and others that didn't make the final ballot, will remain on our needs/wish list for future opportunities.
To learn more about Participatory Budgeting and how you can get involved in the upcoming Vote Launch & Project Exop, visit www.insidedistrict9.com/empoweruptown, or call (562) 570-3800.
