49th Ward residents choose how to spend $1 million in infrastructure this week!

If you live in Chicago's 49th Ward, you can help choose how to spend $1 million on neighborhood improvements this week!

Ald. Joe Moore uses a participatory budgeting process to decide how to allocate 49th Ward aldermanic menu money. This money can be spent on infrastructure improvements such as bike lanes, sidewalks and crosswalks, transit station amenities and street safety improvements.

Residents of the 49th Ward will have a say by choosing through a ballot process which projects get funded. If you live in the ward, you can choose to support projects that will make your neighborhood a better place for biking, walking and transit.

The Voting Assembly is this Saturday, April 28. Learn more about the projects on the ballot and the process.
