It is that time of year again to make your voice heard on how you want your local City Council member to spend $1 million of your tax dollars.

Participatory budgeting is back for New York City Council District 30, and Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley is hosting four assemblies next week across the neighborhoods to hear how her constituents would like to spend the funds.

 

The first assembly will be held on Monday, Sept. 19, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Shops at Atlas Park located in Building 8 at 71-19 80th St. in Glendale. On Tuesday, Sept. 20, there will be an assembly meeting at P.S. 229 located at 67-25 51st Rd. in Woodside, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The following evening, Wednesday, Sept. 21, Maspeth will get their chance to speak at an assembly at Maspeth Town Hall, located at 53-37 72nd St. from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. And on Thursday, Sept. 22, the final assembly meeting will be held at the Ridgewood branch of the Queens Library, located at 20-12 Madison St., from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Last year over 2,400 votes were cast across District 30 to bring improvements to schools and libraries across Glendale, Ridgewood, Middle Village and Maspeth.

Check out this interactive map where you can submit an idea for your district. To RSVP for one of the assemblies, contact Crowley’s office.
