The participatory budget of Ahuntsic-Cartierville is back
The Borough of Ahuntsic-Cartierville is launching the third edition of its participatory budget. A budget of $350,000, or $100,000 more than last year, will therefore be allocated for projects chosen by the residents.
This new edition notably offers a youth component which aims to support a group of young people in carrying out a project. The selection process will end next summer and the chosen initiatives will be carried out over the next two years.
“The Participatory Budget […] is important because it makes it possible to initiate collaborative work between the population, the elected officials and the public service of the borough”, indicates in a press release the borough mayor, Émilie Thuillier.
A meeting to gather ideas is planned online as well as face-to-face on November 2 at 7 p.m., at the Cartierville YMCA. A preliminary analysis of the ideas by the Borough will follow. In January and February, the projects will be developed with the residents, then submitted to the public vote in May and June.
The second edition of the participatory budget notably led to the holding of four representations of The Mobile Comedy as well as the creation of two permaculture nurturing spaces at St-Simon-Apôtre and Salaberry parks.
