Kensington Neighborhood Assembly for Participatory Budgeting
Monday, October 1st, 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Kensington residents, what does the neighborhood need that $1,000,000 of Councilmember Brad Lander's capital improvements budget could be spent on? Does it need
- more security cameras and improved lighting in and around subway stations?
- roads paved?
- sidewalks repaired?
- street lighting improved?
- a dog run constructed?
- playgrounds refurbished?
- technology provided to schools?
- technology provided to libraries?
- tree guards installed?
- a combination of two or more from this list?
You might want to browse ideas already suggested on the "Participatory Budgeting in NYC District 39" website. You can submit an idea online, or you can suggest it at Monday's neighborhood assembly.
Look here at the twenty projects that were included on last year's ballot. Look here at the seven projects that won. The top vote-getters were safety, the environment, schools, and a library. Following that are five projects that weren't winners but were funded by other money in Councilmember Lander's budget.
