How does Neighbourhood Decision Making work?
Step 1: Residents are encouraged to identify a neighbourhood building project(s) that enhances and strengthens their neighbourhood. Funds may be used on a variety of different projects which could include: planting public gardens, community public art, piloting a community program, hosting a neighbourhood event, documenting your neighbourhood’s history, or enhancing a park or playground.
Step 2: City staff will support residents to develop their idea into a one-page proposal, working to make sure that it is possible to implement the proposed idea.
Step 3: A community vote will be held for residents to vote for their favourite ideas.
Step 4: City staff will work with the residents who submitted the winning ideas to implement their neighbourhood project.
