Friends of Brook Park has a major proposal up for vote with regards to the Parpiticipatory Budgeting process in NYC 2013.
A process allows a few city council members involved to fund a community based project which the community is involved from the beginning, become delegates and give their final vote in the end. About 1 million dollars is available for council districts involved to fund these projects. We have a major proposal to get a Solar Powered Green House established in the South Bronx in public green space that would be youth based to help our community grow food, learn how to market and sell their own food and grow a green economy.
All of you who live or know someone who lives in the 8th council district which is Council Woman Mellissa Mark-Viverito’s distrcit can vote to get this important project funded. Last year we missed the threshold by less than ten votes!
Anyone who lives in the Bronx or Harlem and are within the new redistricting lines can vote for this project. Ray and Harry please make any corrections if I misstated anything.- All of us should come out to show our support at one of the dates listed below and pass the word out to people who do!
