Neighbourhood Decision Making is a key component in engaging Londoners to have a sense of belonging in their neighbourhoods and community as outlined in the City of London’s Strategic Plan.

Now that Neighbourhood Decision Making 2022 is complete, we encourage you to begin thinking of ideas to improve your neighbourhood so that you are prepared to submit an idea during next year’s Neighbourhood Decision Making program.

About the program

Residents know the needs of their neighbourhoods better than anyone. They're the ones with great ideas to help make their neighbourhood stronger, safer, connected and vibrant. Many neighbourhoods can benefit from things like community events, a playground upgrade or outdoor exercise equipment. But some ideas need a bit of cash to come to life.

That’s why the City of London created the Neighbourhood Decision Making Program, where residents submit their ideas and get to vote on which ideas they want to see come to life. That’s what makes this program special -- the community gets to decide!

Neighbourhood Decision Making allows residents to be involved in making their neighbourhood a better place to live, while connecting with their neighbours and engaging in their municipal government.

Through this program, a total of $250,000 is available to enhance neighbourhoods across the city. Individual neighbourhood projects can receive up to $30,000 to be implemented.

    Yes, you can! Londoners can visit their local public library to submit a paper copy of their idea submission for Neighbourhood Decision Making. Just ask your librarian for assistance and they will provide you with everything you need.

    What are the borders for the 5 geographical areas and what criteria was used to determine the areas? Thank you

    Nassim asked 12 months ago

    Hi Nassim,

    Thanks so much for reaching out! Below is a map of all the areas of the City.  

    Population sizes and natural boundaries like main arterial roads and where our Neighbourhood Associations were located were considered when establishing the areas.

    Don’t hesitate to reach out to neighbourgood@london.ca if you have anymore questions. 

    Have a great day,  

    The NeighbourGood Team
