Simply explained, civic participation is the participation of citizens in individual political and economic decisions and planning processes. Be it in the form of surveys, meetings or discussion groups.
We need people who are committed to our community and their neighbourhood, who work with us on projects, contribute ideas and motivate others to participate as well. We want to involve our citizens in our projects.
There are two different types of citizen participation:
Statutory citizen participation, i.e. there are plans in which the municipality must involve the citizens. This is regulated by law. If, for example, the municipality wants to have a radio mast erected, or a new building area is to be planned, the law requires that the public be informed about the planning and that the citizens be involved.
Voluntary citizen participation is not regulated by law. This is about the voluntary introduction of ideas into a project.
All projects where we need your support can be found here.
