What is PBNYC?
Real Decisions, Real Money: Participatory budgeting is a democratic economic process in which you get to decide how to spend a portion of the city’s capital budget. This year, residents of the 33rd District have proposed projects and will vote on how to spend $1 million in capital funds. From Greenpoint to Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights to Williamsburg, community members just like you have gathered at Neighborhood Assemblies learned about PBNYC, shared ideas, and developed their proposals all while getting to know each other. Winning projects will be funded by Councilman Stephen Levin.
