    The main goal of that article is to assess the impact of the new solutions on changes in the legal regulation of Elbląg, where such an initiative has been already in place since 2014, and examine whether the practice of using this mechanism of social participation has led to new changes. The amendment of the Act on the Commune Self-Government has not caused a significant qualitative change. Admittedly, the number of signatures required for a civic proposal was reduced, and - although only after the voivode’s intervention - the time limit for their collection was removed, negative elements can still be observed, such as the lack of imposing an obligation on city officials to assist in preparing a draft resolution. In addition to that, attention should be paid to the need for introducing educational and information activities, the lack of which can often lead to non-application of regulations in practice, even those that are of high quality.
