District 7 Participatory Budgeting Idea Swap and Information Session

The community is encouraged to come out and provide input on how to spend District 7 and 8's 2016-2017 capital budget of $54, 833*. Participatory budgeting allows residents, including children, to help choose which projects receive funding and help build stronger communities. Residents of districts 7 & 8 are encouraged to come out to one of the two idea swap and information sessions to learn more about the participatory budgeting process and help generate ideas for community projects.  If you cannot attend the District 7 meeting April 4, you can go to the District 8 meeting April 14.
District 7: Monday, April 4th 7-8:30pm | Halifax Central Library, Lindsay Children’s Room
District 8: Thursday, April 14 7-8:30pm | Italian Cultural Centre, 2629 Agricola Street
Residents can attend either session, as the information covered will be the same.

*Because 2016/17 is an election year, only part of the total $94,000 in capital funding is available until after October 16, 2016. The remainder will be disbursed after the election.
