Nomaji is developing the Central park of Nikkilä together with the service design company Et May and residents of the area. The project is extremely interesting because in the participatory budgeting process, the community members decide how to spend part of the public budget.
The project started with an idea phase. For two weeks, people submitted ideas by visiting the info desks or via the “Chaos Crowd” mobile application. The opportunity to influence the design of the park was well received in Nikkilä, we received almost 400 ideas.
The ideas will be further developed with the residents in a workshop which, due to the prevailing corona situation, will be organized online. After that we will develop alternative plans for the park and estimates of their costs will be calculated. In May, residents and park users will vote via the Chaos Crowd application, which of the plans we will continue to work with.
