49th Ward Residents Have Opportunity Tomorrow to Vote for Better Biking, Walking and Transit!

The 49th Ward is ripe with opportunities to make your neighborhood better for biking, walking and transit.

Ald. Joe Moore is using a participatory budgeting process to decide how to allocate $1.2 million in aldermanic menu money this year. This money can be spent on infrastructure improvements such as bike lanes, sidewalks, train station shelter and street safety improvements.

That means that 49th Ward residents will have a say in which projects get funding. If you live in the ward, you can speak up on behalf of cyclists, pedestrians and transit riders to make your neighborhood a better place to live, work and play.

The Voting Assembly is Saturday, April 10.
