Eight City Council districts participated in the 2012-2013 Participatory Budgeting cycle: District 8 (Mark-Viverito), District 19 (Halloran), District 23 (Weprin), District 33 (Levin), District 39 (Lander), District 44 (Greenfield), and District 45 (Williams). Find out if you live in one of these districts.
The participatory budgeting process involves a series of meetings that feed into the city’s annual budget cycle. The 2012-2013 process included five main steps, beginning in September 2012 with Neighborhood Assemblies and concluding with the vote in early April.
From November to February, budget delegates transformed their communities' initial project ideas into full proposals. They then presented their proposals to the public during Project Expos in February and March, and voting occured from April 1-7.
Stay turned for important information about the 2013-2014 cycle, which will begin with general assemblies in September 2013, and will take place in at least two addtional City Council Districts.
