Improve Your Neighborhood – With a Few Clicks
When you visit our vibrant Chelsea neighborhood, you’re invigorated by it. If you live here, you’re invested in it.
Here’s a unique opportunity to help direct where funding goes, and enhance what you’re most excited about.
Curbed NY described the recent plan:
“The New York City Council is currently in the midst of a grassroots, democratic process known as Participatory Budgeting. Every year, community members introduce spending initiatives for their specific districts, then members of said district vote on the initiatives they want to see funded.”
Fortunately, you don’t have to feel torn between opting for park improvements over education.
You can actually vote on up to five projects.
Vote on the New York City Council’s website.
