Parks Make Gains in Participatory Budgeting

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

NY4P was honored to participate in this City Council term's participatory budgeting process, which included 24 districts.

We see a vibrant future for this democratic tool, and congratulate all who participated. Read more about the results here
