What’s new at the Commune of Ixelles?

As the same as last year, the Commune of Ixelles will once again go out and meet residents in the neighborhoods.

This enables the commune to measure the impact and the necessity of constructive dialogue with the population of Ixelles.

What are the dates, times, and locations for the next planned residents’ meetings?

  • March 21st at 7pm for the “Châtelain” neighborhood and its surroundings (rue Tenbosch)
  • March 27th at 7pm at the communal house for the neighborhood Place Fernand Cocq and the North
  • March 28th at 7pm at the school n° 8 for the neighborhood Boondael

Come one, come all, to debate and ask all of the questions you want to ask.

Ixelles needs you!

Furthermore, Ixelles really needs you to become more inclusive. We invite all Europeans and non-Europeans (who represent half of the electorate in Ixelles) to participate in local politics and to register to vote in the next municipal elections on the 14th of October. In fact, these elections will have a direct impact on your quality of life: your street, your neighborhood, your children and your reception in the municipality.

Furthermore, the advisory council of Ixelles on European Affaires are organizing, on the 20th of March at 7pm, an evening dedicated to the theme of the European elections and the vote of non-Belgians.

Is voting mandatory? Not exactly! Non-Belgians can de-register before any election by sending a simple letter to the commune.
