This is why the local municipality has not yet fully finished landscaping certain public spaces. To be precise, this concerns the large planters between the housing complexes. They are located in L. Bernsteinstraat, P. Schatstraat and B. Brittenstraat. At the moment, grass is growing in them, until the definitive landscaping is in place. That’s up to you to decide. It’s your neighbourhood, after all.
Collecting ideas via an app
You can take part in an experiment. Instead of inviting all of you to attend a meeting, we’d like to collect your ideas digitally. Together with your fellow residents, you’ll be part of one big ‘collective brain’. With a special app that you can use on your smartphone, we’ll all join forces to find ideas and solutions for your area that enjoy widespread support. We’d like to find out what you and your fellow residents want to see in the planters. We hope it will be something that creates an attractive street scene and makes residents happy. Your ideas really count, especially if you share them (anonymously) with others in your area.
How does it work?
The basic idea of the app is that our combined knowledge amounts to more than each of us individually. You can upload your ideas using the app*. These ideas will not be seen by people outside the group. They will be grouped by the system. You will then see what the group thinks of the idea, which will in turn give you new ideas. In this way, we will all pool our ideas in order to progress from a list of individual interests to ideas for landscaping the public spaces that are supported collectively.

A few tips
- Do not remove the app from your phone, or you will lose your responses.
- If at any time the app freezes, close the app completely and relaunch it. Sometimes it helps to switch from Wi-Fi to 4G, if the Wi-Fi connection is not completely stable.
