District West thinks it is important for its residents to help think about and decide on the plans that the municipality carries out. Because you know what your neighbourhood and surroundings really need.
Thanks to West Budgets, the residents of Westerpark, Bos & Lommer, Oud-West and De Baarsjes can send us their plans that improve the quality of life in their neighbourhood.
After collecting the plans, all residents can vote on the ideas. This allows them to participate in how € 300,000,- of the district budget of West is spent.
The city district will check the plans for feasibility. This may have consequences for your plan. In consultation with you, the district may alter your plan to make it feasible - but never any changes that turn the original plan – with at least 50 likes – into something completely different.
In November 2021, all the residents in district West will receive a letter with a voting code. This code allows them to divide € 300,000,- over the plans they think are the best, by using this website. The plans with the most votes will be carried out.
