It's that time of year again. Participatory Budgeting NYC is back, giving you a chance to vote on a range of capital projects in your district, including upgrades to schools, parks, libraries and public housing. Those with the most votes in each district are guaranteed funding until the money set aside runs out.
Some projects, like the one to improve the 142nd Street Dog Run in Riverside Park, have even organized events this week to bring extra awareness–and funding. The group behind the dog run is holding a raffle this Thursday, April 4 taking place At The Wallace. One $20 ticket gets you four chances to win prizes from such Hamilton Heights businesses as Harlem Public, Bono Trattoria and The Honey Well.
Upper Manhattan's four council districts include District 7, District 8, District 9, and District 10, so head to yours to read about the planned projects in your area, then find your poll site–or simply vote online.
