Basic Infrastructure Repairs
The community voted to spend 67 percent of the $1 million on streets and alley resurfacing, and sidewalk and alley apron repairs. Prior to the vote, Community Reps identified streets and alleys for resurfacing, and sidewalks and alley aprons for repairs. Community Reps have developed databases where they capture this information.
It is estimated that four street resurfacing projects should be completed in 2018 under the Participatory Budgeting project.
