Crowdfunding For City Projects Rejected in Raleigh

Raleigh North Carolina (Wikipedia)Raleigh residents won’t be paying for bike racks and other small endeavors after City Council members on Tuesday rejected a pilot program through which residents privately fund neighborhood projects.

Mayor Nancy McFarlane voted in favor of the program, along with councilmen John Odom, Bonner Gaylord and Russ Stephenson. Council members Eugene Weeks, Randy Stagner, Thomas Crowder and Mary-Ann Baldwin cast no votes.

Had it been approved, Citizens Advisory Councils would have managed the program for one year.
