The neighborhood meeting schedule:
• 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 26 > Copernicus Center
• 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 29 > Hitch Elementary School
• 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 30 > St. Constance Parish Hall
• 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Nov. 5 > Lydia Home Administrative Offices
• 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Nov. 7 > Disney II Magnet High School
These meetings will determine what voters will decide in the spring. Choices revolve around Alderman John Arena’s discretionary budget, and how much of it will be used to resurface streets and repair sidewalks and curbs.
“This exciting process offers transparency into how the city spends your tax dollars and gives [voters] a real voice — by offering ideas and voting for specific projects — into how that money is spent in our community,” Arena said, calling the participatory budget process an “exciting expansion of democracy.”
