Megan Green, our 15th Ward Alderman, has allocated $100,000 over 2 years from her budget to Participatory Budgeting. This means that the residents of the 15th Ward, can submit ideas and vote on them to select what happens in our ward. This process is run by the 15th Ward Participatory Budgeting Committee, which is composed of resident volunteers.
We are trying to learn what you think our neighborhoods need most, and to gather ideas from you about what we could do to improve our neighborhoods. The funds in this budget can only be spent on physical improvements. However, we are trying to gather information about all the needs, issues and concerns our residents face, whether they can be addressed through physical improvements or not. Please be sure to share with us all of the ideas and concerns you have, then the committee will work to make proposals that will be feasible to fund and execute.
The ideas gathered in this process will be used to craft proposals for physical improvements which will then be reviewed by neighborhood residents at a series of expos in late March. After further revision based on citizen feedback, final proposals will be voted on by residents of the 15th ward in the middle of April.
