Last days to present projects in the Participatory Budgets of Martorell

Until June 28, proposals can be submitted to the Participatory Budgets of Martorell 2021. Entities and citizens can formulate their ideas to improve the town on the web or in person at the Participatory Budget Office of El Círcol.

The City Council of Martorell has opted this year to incorporate a more social aspect to the call and expand the issues raised, beyond those related to investments. “Due to the pandemic, how it has affected us, how it can continue to affect us and the desire to provide a solution, we will include social ideas,” said Councilor for Participation, Belén Leiva.

Another novelty is that “people who, despite not already being registered in Martorell, continue to be linked in some way through associations, will also be able to submit proposals”. A way to integrate “people who maintain the link with the population and the feeling of wanting to improve it”.

The second phase, from June 29 to September 15, will be the technical evaluation of the proposals and their reformulation, if applicable. Finally, the third will be voting, from October 1 to November 1 (both inclusive).

In parallel to this participatory process aimed at people over the age of 16, there will also be Participatory Budgets for Children and Adolescents. The councilor explains that “it is an organizational handicap, because there is a very important event for children, which is the day of the joint vote. Doing it now at the end of the school year would have been very complicated, so we decided that during the first term of the next school year proposals would be made at the school and submitted later. If possible, we could vote together in April. “

In the Participatory Budgets of the Children the students of 4th, 5th and 6th of all the schools participate, while in those of the adolescents students of 1st to 4th of ESO take part.
