The projects include: Potential infrastructure projects were submitted by neighbors and those approved by Martin’s staff will appear on the upcoming ballot. • $100,000 for curb extensions at Ashland and Ainslie and Damen and Belle Plaine
Voting is offered both online, and in person at at Sulzer Library, 4455 N. Lincoln Ave., and at one retirement community. This year, Martin is setting aside up to $250,000 from the ward’s 2021 and 2022 infrastructure funds to be voted on. From May 10-17, any 47th ward resident age 14 or older is invited to vote on how they should be spent.
“We got 1,500 votes in one week last time we did this,” said Josh Mark, Martin’s director of development and infrastructure. Typically, an alderman has complete discretion on how the money will be spent, but some City Council members like Ald. Matt Martin (47th) invite neighbors to have a say in how a portion of that money will be spent.
