In the last few years, District 10 went through a Participatory Budgeting process and we will be undertaking a similar effort this year. This year, District 10 has been allocated $250,000 of discretionary funding for neighborhood projects.
What is Participatory Budgeting?  

Participatory Budgeting is a democratic process that gives community members the opportunity to set budgeting priorities and make decisions on what community projects should be funded.
