OmaStadi is the City of Helsinki’s way to provide participatory budgeting services. The city is divided into seven major districts, and each district has been allocated a budget according to its population size. The purpose of OmaStadi is to draw up proposals and make plans that are equal for all and benefit everyone. You are not required to have accurate cost information in the proposal phase. The ideas are later developed into feasible plans by the residents and experts from the City services. The experts will create cost estimates for the plans. A vote on these plans is held in the spring. The district’s proposals can be voted on by everyone aged 12 or over. Submitting proposals, developing plans and voting are all done in the OmaStadi.hel.fi service.
