Closing Bell: Vote for Participatory Budgeting Projects


Councilmember Brad Lander’s office sent out an email blast this morning about how ballots to vote on projects vying for participatory budgeting will be available at various days and locations starting today in the councilmember’s district, including locations in the Slope, Windsor Terrace and Carroll Gardens. Unlike the sample ballot shown above, the real ones will be legible. There’s detailed information and videos about all the proposals here. Some project ideas include a host of renovations at various local schools; bus time countdown clocks; and to build sidewalk “bulbs” at Carroll St & Third Ave to minimize pedestrian crossing distances. Click through for a list of all the voting locations, days and times. The voting is only being done in person because the officials need to verify that voters live in the district. A total of $1 million will go to the projects that get the most ballot votes.
