The next round of participatory budgeting is ...

The next round of participatory budgeting is about to begin! This is when you and your neighbors decide how to spend over $1 million in improvements for the 49th Ward. Each year, I receive over $1 million from the City’s “Aldermanic Menu” program to spend at my discretion on infrastructure improvements in the ward. Nine years ago, I implemented a “participatory budgeting” process in which the residents of my ward decide directly through popular vote how those tax dollars are spent. Since then, scores of cities across the nation have emulated our process and just recently Participatory Budgeting became the subject of a PBS documentary. The process for determining how to spend next year’s budget begins NOW. Over the next two weeks, I will host six “Neighborhood Assemblies” (five in English and one in Spanish) throughout the 49th Ward. The first assembly takes place Monday, April 23rd, 7:00 p.m. (complimentary pizza served at 6:30 p.m.) at Sullivan High School, 6631 N. Bosworth (enter through the door in the middle of the block). If you can’t make this assembly, there are five more to choose from. For more information, including a list of all the Participatory Budgeting Neighborhood Assemblies, visit: https://www.ward49.com/news/decide-how-to-spend-1-million-to-improve-the-neighborhood-participatory-budgeting-begins-next-week/

Joe Moore, Alderman of Chicago's 49th Ward ad...

Follow Me on Friday as I visit a place where you can stay truly fit and healthy. Join me at Urban Warrior Fitness and Wellness, 1546 W. Howard (just east of Willye White Park) this Friday, April 6, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Owner and personal trainer Barry Hoven moved his fitness studio to Rogers Park a few years ago. He receives rave reviews from his clients and offers a variety of reasonably priced training sessions, with classes geared to every type of person–from moms with kids to senior citizens to boot camp fanatics. Barry provides creative fitness regimens conducted in a well-appointed, colorful, nicely decorated gym. Urban Warrior also offers customized meal plans prepared by Kettlebell Kitchen. Barry is heavily involved in Rogers Park, serving on the Howard Street Special Service Area Committee, and is a community partner with Family Matters, A Just Harvest, the Recyclery, and the Rogers Park Business Alliance. He also hosts regularly scheduled Urbe art exhibits in the gym. Come see what Urban Warrior has to offer to help meet your fitness and wellness needs and enjoy complementary appetizers from Kettlebell Kitchen and Phil Stefani’s Inspired Catering and Events and juice from the Heartland Café. Complimentary beer and wine is also available. Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub, business or festival where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday.
