With it, the citizens can express their opinion and choose a micro-district.
“We conduct public consultations, that is, we ask the opinion of the inhabitants. The project is being implemented by the “Active Community” in partnership with the Khmelnytskyi City Council. For today’s consultation we are making a proposal to choose the location of the area for walking animals. The theme is relevant, as the city is growing and there are more and more pets, but no special places where you can spend time with them”, – added the regional coordinator of the “Active Community” Julia Mazur.
Participation in the press conference was also attended by representatives of the authorities, public and journalists. The topic of public consultations and the peculiarities of using this tool of engagement sparked a lively discussion among the participants.
Let’s remind, that the long-term project “Roadmap for Government” is realized in 30 cities in the part of the organization of public consultations, among them – 18 regional centers and 12 small cities.
The Project “Roadmap For Government” is being implemented with the support of the National Democratic Institute (NDI).
