To the end of last year the finances have been issued in the council. It was a large job that needed to be done because 5 million euro's needed to be saved per year. Although the econmization was partly settled upon by the coalition in the council, we worked hard to make some improvements. The plans of the coalition included cut backs on climate plans however during the meeting we got rid of this and at the same time included new plans for the municipality to reduce stress, burn-outs and depressions among the population.
In the new year the council will discuss new plans by the WUR for construction around the NIOO, plans on enforcing the Grebbedijk and plans for the city centre.
Connect Wageningen stands for:
An inclusive society
The population dynamics in Wageningen are changing. We see an increase in (international) young people, but also our elderly population is rising. Connect Wageningen sees these changes as opportunities for new initiatives that benefit everyone in Wageningen, also the local Wageningers.
A sustainable city
Making Wageningen climate neutral by 2030 is something we do together. This can be done by implementing smarter infrastructure and especially by opening up the floor to more citizens to think how they can contribute on the neighbourhood level. Moreover, the knowledge generated at the university can be used much more intelligently.
Wageningen is a diverse city in many ways which we should cherish. However, we see many opportunities to create more life in Wageningen so that citizens stay in Wageningen during the weekends as well. We want to invest more in culture and social initiatives.
The WUR campus is developing fast which consequently loses the connection with the city. We want to strenghten the relationships between the university and the local Wageningen citizen by making sure that there are enough opportunities where they can interact. Besides that, we want to make Wageningen more accessible through its public transportation.
Organizations in Wageningen call for a more inclusive election by translating the kieskompas poll to English
Everyone who is entitled to vote must also be able to vote, including people who can not read Dutch.
