Newsletter October 29

This weekend represents a unique opportunity for Londoners to weigh in on how City Council spends money in their community.

Through the Neighbourhood Decision Making Pilot Project, residents submit ideas on how to spend a portion of the municipal budget in their communities.

 

The two communities involved in the pilot project are Medway and Ward 13. Medway residents are able to vote on one of 19 ideas this Saturday, October 29 at Sir Frederick Banting Secondary School.

 

Ideas for potential projects were submitted by community members over a five month period, then were assessed for feasibility. This week, residents have campaigned with the hopes of seeing their ideas become a reality in their own neighbourhoods.

 

Meanwhile, residents of Ward 13 will have a chance to vote on 11 proposals on Saturday, November 5.

 

Londoners are showing they want to be involved in how their money is spent in their respective communities. Through this project, we are engaging citizens, ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to be a part of the process in making their community the best it can be. Those who live in these neighbourhoods know their needs best, and know where resources should be spent.

 

With our Strengthening Neighbourhoods Strategy, we are committed to making neighbourhoods vibrant, connected, and distinctive. Great neighbourhoods make a great city for us all to live.

  

Sincerely,
