Tips and advice

Throughout the submission period, we organised the 'How to Write a Project Proposal' event. Approximately 60 people attended at the VISTA college for tips, advice, and one-on-one discussions with experts.

What's next?

In the coming period, each and every project proposal will be thoroughly reviewed. If there's any missing information or if we have further questions, we will contact the initiator. In consultation with the person who submitted the proposal, we may decide to modify the project, adjust the budget, encourage collaboration between projects, or reject the project.

Once the projects are finalised, we will publish them on our website. However, this does not necessarily mean that all project proposals will proceed to round 4 (project selection). The municipal executive will decide in November which projects meet the project criteria. These criteria are stated in section 6 of the General Regulations.

Uiterlijk dinsdag 28 november 2023 hoor je of jouw projectvoorstel doorgaat naar ronde 4. Tijdens een feestelijk slotevent in december stemmen inwoners over alle projecten die meedoen in ronde 4. Daarna is duidelijk welke projecten in 2024 uitgevoerd gaan worden.
