On Tuesday evening, May 19th, District 7 (Halifax South Downtown) residents voted in one of Canada’s most ambitious participatory budgeting exercises. Fifteen projects valued at more than $183,000 applied to receive a portion of $94,000 in municipal grants available.

About 335 voters of all ages attended and were asked to choose their favourite five projects. When the dust settled eight different projects were approved – including the LMST Playground project!

In about 4-6 weeks, we will receive $20,000 to rebuild our playground spaces once the construction of our new school is complete.

Many thanks to everyone who went down to the library to vote and thanks to Councillor Waye Mason for developing this unique and valuable initiative.
