ROGERS PARK — Residents' final chances to brainstorm ideas for the 2015 Participatory Budgeting ballot are Tuesday and Wednesday.
At two final meetings — called Neighborhood Assemblies — residents are invited to come up with fresh ideas about where to spend $1 million of Ald. Joe Moore's 49th Ward discretionary budget and learn more about the process.
In Chicago, each of the city's aldermen is given $1.3 million a year to spend as he or she wishes on infrastructure projects, which can range from street paving to public art installations.
Each year since 2009, 49th Ward residents have proposed projects and then voted on which they want funded.
The final meetings:
• 7 p.m. Tuesday, Loyola Park Field House, 1230 W. Greenleaf Ave.
• (Spanish language) 7 p.m. Wednesday, St. Jerome Church Parish Center, 1709 W. Lunt Ave.
