It’s time to vote! City Councilmember Erik Bottcher has allocated $1 million for Participatory Budgeting (PB) in Council District 3 (which includes Flatiron & NoMad).

Now through April 14, anyone who lives, works, or goes to school (ages 11 and up) in District 3 is eligible to vote. Individuals can vote in-person at these locations and in Madison Square Park on Tuesday, April 9 from 1 – 5:30 pm and Wednesday, April 10 from 2 – 4 pm.

Ballot items in Flatiron & NoMad include:

  • Broadway Pedestrian Plaza (Broadway from 27th – 28th Streets)
    • Cost: $300K

  • Madison Square Park Fence Upgrades (11 Madison Avenue)
    • Cost: $200K
    • This project would replace fencing around Madison Square Park’s 26th Street Garden and Redbud Lawn.
