Gallus "Social City" Consultative District Council

Gallus "Social City" Consultative District Council

In order to ensure the ongoing and long-term inclusion of the residents in the Social City renewal process, in 2003-4, in collaboration with Local Consultative Council 1, a concept for a “Social City” Consultative District Council was devised and implemented in the district. The Municipal Authorities passed a separate resolution for the formation and composition of each of the four Consultative District Councils.

The “Social City” Consultative District Council first began its work at a constituent meeting on March 25, 2004. Following two successful years’ of work on the Integrated Action Concept (IHk), the first period in office ended in March 2006. The Council was then reelected for a further two years, with periods dating from 2006 to 2008, 2009 to 2012 and finally the ContinuityCouncil from 2013 to 2014.

The members of the Consultative District Council included 19 residents (elected by secret ballot at a public residents’ assembly) and 18 representatives of institutions, clubs, initiatives in the zone designated for the project (appointed by the bodies themselves). The City Planning Department, the district management and the project steering committee attended the meetings as consultant members.

Not only did the Consultative District Council make important recommendations for the Integrated Action Program and the design of the overall process; part of its brief was to represent the interests of local residents in the Social City Gallus. In addition, it provided an opportunity for exchanging ideas between residents and those in office in the district, not to forget for personal commitment, for example in the history workshop.

The Consultative District Council elected to oversee the Continuity Phase in 2013/4 reduced its members to 24 overall. Having a community chest at its disposal, it was for the first time in a position to support minor social projects and activities destined to foster good neighborhood relations in the long term.

In March 2015, with the urban revitalization procedure having come to an end, the then head of department bid all the members of the Consultative District Council on the four Consultative Council committees farewell at an official ceremony.
