Your ideas wanted for fixing up Houtwijk

Published: 17 October 2019Modified: 17 October 2019

Houtwijk will be given a facelift. The municipality would like to work with residents to draw up plans to make the neighbourhood more beautiful, climate-proof, social, healthy and greener. Residents are invited to help with the plans.

During neighbourhood walks residents already indicated many spots which they think should be fixed up. A number of them were placed on a map which can be found at Residents can submit additional spots which need to be fixed up to this map until 6 November. They can also use this website to follow the developments and help make plans.
