The largest of Budapest?s 23 districts, Dist. 11 will assume the name of Újbuda [New Buda] on May 29, the day that will mark the 75th anniversary of inaugural meeting of the first local council. Today, the district consists of 20 clearly defined areas including such as Lágymányos, Kelenföld, Gazdagrét, Sashegy etc. The name chosen by the local representatives refers to the youthful image of the district and its potential for further development. May 29 will also see the launch of the ?Újbuda? program. A key feature in the program is a toll-free phone number for reporting various local problems. Another important part of the plan is the ?Drug Free Schools? program.
