It’s the last day to vote for ideas for decision-making in the Borough of London
Saturday is the last day to vote for ideas put forward by the community that could be implemented in London boroughs.
230 ideas submitted by residents, neighborhood associations and students were considered. A total of 79 have been transformed into project proposals and are to be examined.
“Whether it was playground improvements, murals, community parties or outdoor exercise equipment, Londoners submitted a diverse range of ideas to improve their neighbourhoods,” said said Karen Oldham, Manager of Neighborhood Development and Supports.
There is no age limit for those who can vote, although online registration is required to access the forum.
“Residents, whether new to London or too young to vote in a municipal election, are encouraged to vote to determine how part of the municipal budget will be spent.”
Online voting began last Saturday and will end at 11:59 p.m. Saturday. You can read all the proposals and vote on the city’s website.
Voting can also be done in person from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at branches of the London Public Library. Members of municipal staff or volunteers will also be present in the libraries.
Londoners can also call 519-661-8410 to vote between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The city says it will tally the votes in the coming days and post the successful ideas that will receive funding for implementation.
