Neighbourhood Decision Making Program Accepting Ideas by Oct 27!

October 27th is the deadline to submit an idea for the new Neighbourhood Decision Making Program.

City Council has committed $250,000 annually to support a Neighbourhood Decision Making Program across the city using five geographic areas (Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest, and Central). Old South is included in the "Central" region. Each region is allocated $50,000.

This program will allow you to propose ideas to enhance your neighbourhood, with the community voting on which ideas will go forward!

Visit the website for more information or to submit your idea before the October 27 deadline at: https://getinvolved.london.ca/NDM

OR

The Landon Library, 167 Wortley Rd. (forms also available at the library).

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, restoring environmental resources, creating 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.
 

Here are some guidelines for submitting an idea:

Idea proposals *should*:

·         Involve and empower members of the neighbourhood and demonstrate broad-based and diverse participation in the project process.

·         Be originated, planned and put into action by the neighbours and community members who will be affected by the project.

·         Occur within the city limits and be on public land that is accessible.

 

Idea proposals may achieve any of the following outcomes:

·         Improve neighbourhood safety, participation and mobility

·         Beautify the neighbourhood

·         Improve community connections and understanding between neighbours

·         Encourage diversity and inclusion

·         Enhance or expand green space

 

Community vote will be held Nov 18 at Libraries across the city and online. Residents will decide!
