I am proud to announce the results
of the District 10 Participatory Budgeting process. During this year's program, over 1,100 District 10 residents voted to decide on how we should spend $250,000 to improve and enhance our neighborhoods.
The winning projects are listed below in the order of the number of votes received. Thank you to all who participated in this process. From submitting a project idea to getting fellow residents involved, your participation made a difference.
