Earlier this year, residents submitted more than 300 ideas for projects they wanted funded. Over the summer PB Budget Delegates vetted the projects.
The 41 proposals that made it to the ballot include a new bus shelter, safer sidewalks, handicapped accessible playground equipment, bike racks and solar charging stations for mobile devices. Parks and Recreation projects proved popular among people who submitted ideas last spring. Ideas that made it to the ballot include adult exercise equipment for Westbury Park, new playground equipment at Apache Park, picnic tables for Arlington Park, and benches near the basketball courts at Windsor Recreation Center.
