District 5 City Council (Roosevelt Island, Upper East Side, Midtown East) 2016 Participatory Budget Vote - Saturday, March 26 - Sunday, April 3: Choose how to spend 1 Million dollars with your vote!
Every vote matters - vote to finalize the funding for the STEM Green Roof!
1.5 Million is needed to transform 6,750 sq. ft. of underutilized school roof top into a science learning hub with an area for performance. Last year 217 Green Roof project won $750,000, but we are only half way there! We must win this year to get the Green Roof! Competition from the Upper East Side is FIERCE, and they are mobilizing at full force for their projects.
Please show up & vote & spread the word to get others to vote.
Vote on the island this Saturday, March 26, 11am-2pm
during the RIRA Easter Egg Hunt at Manhattan Park.

Thank you to everyone who came out and made our first Winter Wonderland family dance such a success! It was so wonderful to see everyone on the dance floor having fun, joining the roaming conga line, and showing off their fancy footwork. We’re already looking forward to doing it again next year!
We couldn’t have pulled off such a fun evening without lots of support and hard work from the P.S. 217 and Roosevelt Island communities. In particular, we want to thank Oxygen Eventworks for donating the amazing lighting and sound setup. Also a big thank you to Gina Leung, Roosevelt Island mom and owner of Fantastic Faces by Gina (Fantasticfacesbygina@gmail.com), for donating her time and talent to turn our little dancers into butterflies, tigers, superheroes, and more. And finally, a huge thank you to Erin Olavesen, Kelly Turner, and Desiree Burrows who organized the dance committee, and to all the volunteers who helped set up, baked delicious treats, sold food and drinks, and truly made the whole event possible.
