This morning the students at PS 124 in Park Slope cut the ribbon for their new school bathroom renovation. The PS 124 bathroom project won funding through a community vote in last year’s participatory budgeting program — this project is the first participatory budgeting project to be completed in New York City. City Council Member Brad Lander allocated the needed $150,000 for renovations. Before the reno, the bathrooms had stalls without doors and damaged tile flooring. Here are all seven projects selected through last year’s participatory budgeting. Since it was so successful, the second year of participatory budgeting started up this fall.
