Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer Announces Participatory Budgeting Neighborhood Assemblies

On Tuesday, September 19, I was thrilled to kick off a new round of Participatory Budgeting with the announcement of seven neighborhood assemblies I will be hosting throughout Western Queens.

For the fourth round of Participatory Budgeting, we’re building on the record breaking turnout and enthusiasm we saw the last time around. When neighbors from all walks of life come together to brainstorm ideas to improve their community, good things happen.

That’s why I’m proud to commit at least $1,000,000 again this year. I encourage everyone to come out to one of our neighborhood assemblies to get the Participatory Budgeting process started.

Starting Monday, September 25, Majority Leader Van Bramer will hold seven neighborhood assemblies at libraries, the Queensbridge, Ravenswood, and Woodside Houses, and at the MoMA PS1. Residents will learn about the Participatory Budging process and are encouraged to propose capital projects to be included on the official Participatory Budgeting ballot to be voted on next year.

Seven neighborhood assemblies will be held at the following locations across Western Queens (in order by date)

  • Sunnyside Library on Monday, September 25 at 6:30PM
  • Jacob A. Riis Settlement House on Wednesday, September 27 at 6:30PM
