The majority of the 71 proposals submitted to Tallinn's 2023 participatory budget so far focus on making urban space safer and greener.
The deadline for applications closes on October 2 and entries can be submitted in Estonian, Russian or English. Funding is likely to total €1 million this year.
Each city district can carry out one project a year and the winning projects should be publically accessible and free to use.
Residents will be able to choose their favorites in a public vote between November 21 to December 4.
Kesklinn District Elder Monika Haukanõmm said last year's winning proposal — planting more trees in the city center — will be completed by November. In total, 108 different species will be planted in 15 locations.
"The first year we implemented community engagement in Tallinn , the idea of installing more drinking water taps in the city center was a winner. As a result, there are now twice as many of them in the district as before," she said.
