Neighbourhood Decision Making Ideas Announced

The results are in! Residents from every neighbourhood of the city have participated in London’s city-wide 2018 Neighbourhood Decision Making (NDM) program. More than 7,100 Londoners helped decide what neighbourhood enhancement projects will be funded by voting online (5,680) or at their local library branch (1,434) on Saturday, June 16.

“The Neighbourhood Decision Making program is such a great way for Londoners to decide on what type of investment they’d like in their own community,” said Mayor Matt Brown. “It’s amazing to see the creativity and passion behind the projects. Thank you to all those who submitted ideas and voted.”

A total of $250,000 was available, with the city divided into five geographic areas, each area receiving $50,000 for projects to help make London’s many great neighbourhoods even better.

How it Works

City Council has committed $250,000 annually to support a Neighbourhood Decision Making Program across the city. This program will allow you to propose ideas to enhance your neighbourhood, with you deciding on which ideas will go forward!

Check out the Guidelines for Ideas list 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.
