Letter from the mayor:

 

Dear inhabitant of Vaasa,

We are on the verge of something new in terms of municipalities. What is about to happen is the biggest administrative change during the time Finland has been independent. The transition of social and health care services from the municipalities to the provinces from the beginning of 2019 has big impacts also on Vaasa.

Now it’s time to think about what happens with our hometown in the future. In our future functions we will focus on welfare and vitality, education, culture, leisure time and what the inhabitants of Vaasa find important. What do you think we should aim at and what should we avoid? What are our strengths and where should our emphasis be during the coming years?

The new city council to be elected during spring 2017 will start working on a new city strategy. For the work to succeed in the best way possible, every inhabitant’s contribution is important. Also yours. That’s why we have compiled this completely new inquiry, which we hope you will answer.

It's not a traditional multiple-choice questionnaire. This time it's a truly interactive process, where every inhabitant in Vaasa has their chance to start a discussion on those topics, which feels important on a personal level. There is also a chance to comment other people’s views and develop the ideas further. Participation only takes approximately fifteen minutes.

I invite you to participate in giving ideas for our new Vaasa.

Tomas Häyry
City Mayor
