Summary
While this process is developed and assisted by the consultant, the key for its success is to be community led and community driven. The concept being that the community knows best what it wants and will have far more buy-in by developing their own projects. The campaign aspect is key to reducing organization barriers and any territorial concerns inherent in such efforts. This campaign is open to all and anyone can participate in any form they choose. It leverages the expertise, knowledge and know-how of the entire community. Efforts will not be relegated to committees, but to everyone in all forms. The campaign will be ongoing, at all times, everywhere in the city. The community itself will be involved in documenting its campaign on social media channels, making it available and visible to everyone. The end result will be a community that feels empowered, proud and closer together.
