Results are in for the 2019 edition of the City Council’s Participatory Budgeting program, which lets New Yorkers vote on how to allocate $1 million in discretionary funding in their neighborhood.

Residents of Council Speaker Corey Johnson’s third district, which covers the West Village, Chelsea and Hells Kitchen, voted to fund three projects:

• Tree guards and other protections for all street trees planted in the district since 2017

• Improved lighting in the park areas at NYCHA’s Elliott-Chelsea Houses and Fulton Houses

• Thirty-five new water bottle filling stations in public schools throughout the district
