Yesterday, voting started for participatory budgeting, making history by deciding how we want to spend at least $1 million to improve our community. About 300 people turned up yesterday at the Children’s Aid Society and the Youth Hostel to vote on which projects to fund, and a Columbia Spectator article describes the tough decisions we have to make. This is your opportunity to choose to install security cameras, get new technology for schools and libraries, improve parks, as well as numerous other great projects. You can read all about the different projects (in English and Spanish) your neighbors have developed. Now’s your chance to choose which among these 29 projects should be funded.
Voting will continue until this upcoming Saturday.
Saturday, March 31st, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
