Participatory budgeting in District 26 underway

The sixth year of participatory in District 26, which includes LIC, Sunnyside and Woodside, is now underway.

Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer is committing a minimum of $1 million to projects that receive the most votes from residents. In the last cycle, his office funded $2.05 million for five projects.

Here’s the schedule for the rest of the neighborhood assemblies, which are community residents where residents brainstorm capital project ideas.

  • Tuesday, September 24, 6 p.m. at Sunnyside Library (43-06 Greenpoint Avenue)
  • Wednesday, September 25, 6 p.m. at Jacob Riis Neighborhood Settlement (10-25 41st Avenue)
  • Thursday, September 26, 6 p.m. at Woodside Community Center (50-19 Broadway)
  • Monday, September 30, 6 p.m. at Hunters Point Library (47-40 Center Boulevard)

Residents can also share their ideas online here.
