What Projects Won Funding from Participatory Budgeting Here at WHA we are big fans of the Participatory Budgeting process, where the average citizen gets to give their input on how to spend a million dollars on projects in the neighborhood. The first step is where you get to suggest capital projects that you’re passionate about and think should be funded. After that, a ballot will be created; the final vote happens in the spring. Next month you’ll have a chance to suggestion your ideas as well as learn more about the Participatory Budgeting process. To do so, attend a neighborhood assembly! They take place on four days in different locations. They are: Thursday, September 14, 2017, 6pm North Queensview Community Board Room 2 33-64 21st Street (side entrance) [map] Monday, September 18, 2017, 7pm Cretans Association 32-33 31st Street [map] Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 7pm Astoria Houses Community Center 4-05 Astoria Blvd [map] Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 6pm Bohemian Hall 29-19 24th Avenue [map] If you can’t make any of these events for whatever reason, you can submit your ideas here (click the blue SUBMIT AN IDEA button). To volunteer during a neighborhood assembly, fill out this form. Volunteering consists of helping people sign-in and facilitating group brainstorming sessions. Here are the previous cycle’s winners. We hope you can make one of these neighborhood assemblies and participate in the Participatory Budgeting process!
