Abierto el plazo de votación de las propuestas presentadas al Presupuesto Participativo de 2025

Se han recibido 82 propuestas, más de la mitad en el área de Urbanismo, Escena Urbana y Movilidad82 proposals have been received, more than half in the area of ​​Urban Planning, Urban Scene and Mobility

This Monday the voting period for the proposals presented to the 2025 Participatory Budget opened. The councillor for Citizenship Participation, Ana Pellicer, reported that “until 11:59 p.m. on June 30, all registered people over 18 years of age In the city can vote electronically for their favourite proposals through the platform https://benidorm.governalia.es.”

As Pellicer detailed, “In total 82 proposals have been presented, more than half relating to the area of ​​Urban Planning, Urban Scene and Mobility.” Specifically, of the actions or actions proposed by citizens, 43 – two of them the same – fall within this area; while 13 proposals have been presented in the Education, Culture, Youth and Sports block, and as many others in the area of ​​Environment and Street Cleaning – two of them with identical content. The Tourism, Beaches and Safety block has received 9 proposals and 4 those related to Equality, Social Welfare, Health and the Elderly.

The councillor recalled that "through the Participatory Budget, citizens determine to which actions or projects part of the money reserved for investments must be allocated." "We are talking about a powerful tool, operational since 2016, and from which such interesting projects have emerged as children's play areas in the parks of l'Aigüera and Elche, the walkway that connects Els Tolls neighbourhood with Palau d' Esports, the roundabout on Ricardo Bayona Avenue, the adaptation of the old road workers' house on Emilio Ortuño Street as an exhibition centre or the new park located on Marina Alta Avenue,” he added.

For this reason, Ella Pellicer has encouraged citizens to “be an active part of this process and vote for the proposals that are most interesting to them among all those presented.”

Once the voting period ends, a technical commission will be in charge of evaluating and prioritizing the actions based on the criteria of distributive justice included in the bases of the Self-Regulation of the Participatory Budget 2025. Thus, priority will be given to the actions that contribute to satisfying the basic needs of the population (water, electricity, security, education, civic coexistence, etc.); that help reduce social inequality (gender, income, ethnicity, or physical or mental disability); those that meet environmental sustainability criteria (having nearby, renewable, decentralized and self-sufficient resources); those that benefit a greater percentage of the population; or those in which it has not been invested before or has not been invested enough.

Subsequently, the proposals will be the subject of a technical and economic feasibility report by the City Council's technical staff, starting with the most scored and up to the maximum authorized spending limit. If any of the proposals are not technically viable, “it will be included in another list and the next most voted on the final prioritization list will be selected.”

Finally, the proposals approved by the Self-Regulation will be submitted to the Mayor's Office for processing, taking into account the order of priority resulting from the selection process, executing in the budgeted year those works that do not require a public competition or specific technical project or to be submitted to public exhibition.
