Pakila and Tuomarinkylä residents invited to mayor’s resident evening

The next mayor’s resident evening will be organised at Pakila Comprehensive School on Thursday, 22 September at 19:00–20:30. The event can also be viewed live on the city's online video service Helsinki-kanava.

Hosted by Mayor Juhana Vartiainen, the evening will bring together residents of the neighbourhoods of Itä-Pakila, Länsi-Pakila, Tuomarinkylä, Paloheinä, Torpparinmäki and Haltiala, in addition to City of Helsinki representatives and partners.

“The next mayor’s resident evening in our series will be organised at the Pakila Comprehensive School. Everyone is welcome to follow the discussion and ask questions on site, online, through Helsinki-kanava, or whichever suits you best,” says Titta Reunanen, who leads citizen participation efforts for the city.

Preliminary questions and topics for the evening will be collected from residents via the online Voice Your Opinion (KerroKantasi) service. A survey will be available for everyone to read and respond to.

The resident evening will be organised in cooperation with the local associations Pakila-Seura, Pakilan omakotiyhdistys, Pakilan Kiinteistönomistajain Yhdistys and Paloheinä-Torpparinmäki neighbourhood association. Pakila-Seura is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.

A bilingual invitation will be sent to all homes in the invited areas about two weeks before the event.

Pop-up market opens already at 17:30

During the mayor’s resident evening, residents of the invited areas can ask about topical matters directly from the Mayor of Helsinki Juhana Vartiainen and the heads of the city's divisions.

Questions can also be submitted via the message wall through the link available on the Helsinki-kanava website or online.

Local operators and operators of the City of Helsinki will introduce themselves to residents at the Pop-up market.

Health safety measures will be observed at the event. Read more about the latest COVID-19 updates.

A recording of the event will be published later on Helsinki-kanava.
