Amazing turnout by residents of the LeClaire, Hearst and Vittum Park communities at the first participatory budgeting Neighborhood Assembly in Chicago's 22nd Ward. 'What did you suggest?" captures a few of the many ideas and suggestions that were presented by community members.
PB Chicago (pbchicago.org/) is an innovative initiative that lets communities decide how to spend millions of tax dollars. Through a participatory budgeting (PB) process, discretionary capital funds controlled by Aldermen (“menu money”) are allocated by the community.
