With Montréal’s participatory budget, 35 projects are awaiting your vote, including five that directly affect Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce!
Montréal launched its first participatory budget last fall. This method of encouraging public participation allows you to influence the allocation of part of the municipal budget ($10 million) to improve the quality of life in local neighbourhoods, find solutions to the social and environmental challenges of our time and contribute to carrying out projects that will benefit the entire population and future generations.
After nearly 620 ideas were submitted during the first phase, the people of Montréal are now invited to choose the projects to be undertaken. Voting is taking place from June 11 to July 11, online at Making Montréal.
Five inspiring projects in the borough
Among the 35 projects proposed, five could have a direct impact on residents of Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce :
Local bike stations
Installation of multi-use bike shelters combining parking, electrical charging outlets, repair tools, as well as rest and cooling areas for cyclists.
Bicycle education gardens
Creation of 4 bicycle education parks where children and teenagers can develop their biking abilities and learn about basic traffic safety rules, all in a safe and playful environment.
Water in your flask!
Adding more than 125 water fountains and devices to fill reusable water bottles in busy areas that are currently poorly equipped.
Learning and working together outdoors
Creating various outdoor education and work stations connected to public WIFI and adaptable to various types of activities, such as conferences, coworking, intergenerational gatherings, workshops, citizen participation sessions, etc.
