Community Assessment

The Project at a Glance

The purpose of the project is to gather and compile information to help guide efforts for effective community development. The goal is to meet needs, to plan and develop, and to increase engagement, resulting in a greater quality of life and sense of community. This project is designed to be participative and inclusive, using multiple approaches – including public forums, focus groups, interviews, a survey, and other means – to broadly include members of the community. At the end of the assessment, a few areas will be identified for focused action.

The project is structured around, but not limited to, the following sectors of the community:

  • Business, employment, and the economy
  • Human services and non-profit providers
  • Safety and security, law enforcement
  • Education
  • Healthcare
  • Local government
