The mayor’s resident evening on 31 October in Puistola

The residents of Puistola, Tapulikaupunki and Heikinlaakso are invited to Mayor Jan Vapaavuori’s last resident evening in 2019.

The mayor’s resident evening will take place Thursday 31 October at 5:30–8:30 p.m. at Puistolan peruskoulu (Koudantie 2). 

At 5:30, when the resident evening begins, there will be a popup Puistola-Tapulikaupunki event. There, the various divisions will have separate stands where the participants may discuss topical matters of the area and receive and share information about such matters. The objective is to give the residents the chance to have personal discussions with the responsible experts about how items to be resolved are prepared and how they are implemented.

From 7 p.m. onwards, the residents will pose questions and the experts will answer. The mayor’s resident evening concludes at 8:30 p.m.

Topical matters that are up for discussion in the area are at least: concentration of services in the future, the situation at Maatullin koulu, the playgrounds, complementary building, the state of and traffic at Puistola railway station.

Questions and topics for the resident evening that you may wish to raise in advance are being collected through the Voice your opinion service, where a questionnaire that anyone may read and fill out was put online in early October. 

The mayor’s resident evening will be broadcast live on Helsinki Channel (31.10.2019).

The City Executive Office organises the event together with residents and organisations of Puistola and Tapulikaupunki.

Childcare for children over 3 years old will be available at the event.
