Neighbourhood Decision Making 2018
Thanks to all the residents who have submitted project ideas to help make their neighbourhood even better! Ideas are currently under review by City staff and will be developed into one-page proposals for the ballot.
Once ideas are finalized, they will be put on a ballot for a community-wide vote to decide which projects will get funding. Then it's up to you to get your neighbours, friends and family to vote for your idea on Saturday, June 16, 2018. Voting will take place online and at 14 of London's public libraries.
A total of $250,000 is available across the city with a maximum of $50,000 for any single project.
In 2017 almost 5,000 residents voted, selecting 14 projects across 5 geographic areas of the city - Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest, and Central. You can see the number of votes each idea received here.

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.
