An Engaged Community is
a Resilient Community
Nothing moves a community forward more effectively than a empowered populace. In a time of constrained budgets and competition for funding, the support and actions of people living and working in the community are crucial. Therefore, initiatives that build and maintain the commitment of individuals and organizations to the community have the best opportunity for success. Social capital is built along the way, strengthening the community and creating networks that are critical for long-term resiliency. Nealon Planning understands that each project must capture the attention of a wide range of stakeholders, give each a voice at key points during the process, and demonstrate the value of community in shaping an effective plan. At the conclusion of every planning effort, passionate champions emerge that believe in the community's vision. Equipped with a clear plan of action, they lead the charge as the important work of implementation begins.
