A representative from the office of Brad Lander, our New York City Councilmember, will be the guest speaker at the next community meeting of the Albemarle Neighborhood Association (ANA).

The subject will be the neighborhood projects that residents of City Council District 39 can vote to have funded through Participatory Budgeting. Some are capital projects, and others are programming projects. For a description, the cost, and the location of each project, go to the "Meet Your Ballot" page on Councilmember Lander's website.

The list of voting times and locations is on his "How to Vote" page. Voting begins on Saturday, March 25th, and closes on Sunday, April 2nd.
