Division Responsibilities and Goals

Community Development is the planned evolution of all aspects of community well-being: economic, social, environmental and cultural. It is a process whereby community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems. The scope of community development can vary from small initiatives within a small group, to large initiatives that involve the whole community. Regardless of the scope of the activity, effective community development should be:

  • A benefit to the community
  • A long-term endeavor
  • Grounded in experience that leads to best practices
  • Holistic and integrated into the bigger picture
  • Inclusive and equitable
  • Initiated and supported by community members
  • Well-planned
