I invite you to attend one of the upcoming Participatory Budgeting PROJECT EXPOS to learn about the proposed neighborhood improvement projects for 2017 and provide your feedback. The project proposals have been put together by neighborhood volunteers (our PB49 Community Reps), who’ve been working hard the last five months researching and crafting the proposals for your consideration.
This is an important step in the Participatory Budgeting process, which gives the residents of my ward the power to decide directly how to spend $1 million of the Ward’s “menu money,” discretionary funds received annually by each Chicago alderman for infrastructure improvements in their wards.
You need only go to one of the Expos. The dates, times and locations of the Expos are as follows:
- Tuesday, March 28th, 7:00 p.m., Sullivan High School, 6631 N. Bosworth Ave.
- Wednesday, March 29th, 7:00 p.m., St. Jerome’s Parish Center, 1709 W. Lunt Ave ( in Spanish only).
- Saturday, April 1st, 10:00 a.m., Willye White Park, 1610 W. Howard.
