Did you know that children as young as 11 years of age or 6th Grade can vote in participatory budgeting? Even if your child is not yet 11, you can teach them about the importance of participatory budgeting for the community by making this a family project. You can sit down together, look through the community projects and decide how everyone would like to cast their votes. Everyone who is 11 years old and older, can vote!

 

Some of the wonderful proposals on the ballot include:

 

CAPITOL PROJECTS

  • Bathroom renovations at PS 131
  • MS 51 Dance floor refurbishment
  • Prospect Park Children's Corner Improvements
  • Create a Brooklyn Skate Garden in D39
