There are many ways that neighbours can come together to build a sense of community and find ways to solve neighbourhood issues. Here are five things to consider when residents come together to create solutions:
- Gathering Input from Residents
Residents that live in their neighbourhood should a say in the solution – they are the local experts!
- Residents Leading & Initiating
Residents should lead and initiative the solution, not an external group or program from outside the neighbourhood.
- Outcome Benefits for the Neighbourhood
The outcome of a resident-led solution should benefit the entire neighbourhood and residents.
- Opportunity to Participate
Create a solution where all residents have an opportunity to participate.Gathering Assets
Find local assets from the neighbourhood! Assets can be any source that can lead to helping find a solution, such as other community leaders, organizations, businesses, etc.
