Kensington will benefit directly from five of the twenty projects that are listed on the ballot. Windsor Terrace will benefit directly from one of those five projects. Everyone who lives in Councilmember Brad Lander's district can vote on how to spend $1,000,000 of his annual budget. For the second year in a row, Councilmember Lander wants the community to choose up to five projects that are the most important to them.
These are the five projects:
