Cluj city residents can decide how the city’s money is spent

The City Hall of Cluj-Napoca, one of the biggest cities in the Transylvania region, has launched the first online participatory budgeting process in Romania, via which the citizens can have a say in how some of the city’s money is spent, says Romania-Insider.com.

Starting Monday this week, the residents of Cluj-Napoca can propose one or more projects for their city on the recently launched platform Bugetareparticipativa.ro. The projects that get the highest number of votes from the citizens will be implemented by the City Hall starting 2018.

The project proposals must target specific areas such as walks, sidewalks and pedestrian areas, mobility, accessibility and traffic safety, green areas and playgrounds, arrangement of public spaces (urban furniture, public lightning), educational and cultural infrastructure, and “the digital city.”

Those who want to propose one or more projects in these areas have to register on the online platform, which also works on mobile devices. Then, they can submit their proposals until August 20. The maximum estimated budget for each project is EUR 150,000 (including VAT).
