A renewed development council

The headquarters of the Greater Lyon Metropolis (SDH/LPI)

The Lyon Metropolis has renewed its development council and is continuing its actions closer to residents.

The development council of the Metropolis of Lyon, a consultative body designed to encourage debate between the citizens of the region, has renewed some of its members after two years of mandate. “This renewal was a great success, illustrating a strong desire of residents and associations to get involved in democratic life and the projects of our territory,” underlines the Metropolis.

“We are delighted that this new version of the development council, tested for two years, has enjoyed such enthusiasm, allowing for broader mobilization of residents and greater space for debate. Between 2021 and 2023, it put nearly 1,000 people to work on questions of housing, mobility, use of public spaces and encouraged exchanges around economic subjects, ecological transition and social justice.

Laurence Boffet, vice-president at the Métropole de Lyon responsible for participation and citizen initiatives.

Two colleges

Made up of 90 members divided into two colleges between residents and bodies of the territory, the organizing committee, the heart of the Development Council, renewed two thirds of its members in two separate periods

Some of the 45 members of the “residents” college were renewed. Following a call for applications and a general public communications campaign by the Métropole de Lyon in February, nearly 376 applications were received. On April 2, a bailiff drew lots for 31 new members, respecting a representation of ages, genders and geographical origin – with four members present in each Metropolitan Territorial Conference and one member per district of Lyon.

Some of the 45 members of the “territory actors” college were also renewed. 25 associations, unions and other collectives have just been designated during the vote in the standing committee this Monday. These members are organizations active in the territory in different fields (culture, planning and public space, human rights, environment, economy, social, etc.).

The new organizing committee of the Development Council will meet on June 20 to define its work program for the next two years. It will continue its missions of listening to the expectations and proposals of residents, of open debate and of questioning the elected representatives of the Metropolis. For the record, the 2021-2023 promotion intervened directly and for the first time within the framework of the Metropolitan Council of March 2023 regarding the evaluation of the Low Emissions Zone, to which the Development Council will therefore be associated.
