This step formalizes development committees in the municipality. Participants are invited based on their attendance and expressed interest in the public consultation meeting. A municipal councillor should join each development committee in order to facilitate communication between committees and elected officials.
When an idea is proposed, the revitalization agent and any stakeholders present, can illustrate how easy it can be to find funding, to navigate the funding application process, and to make the project become a reality.
When working with a group of people with different opinions, it can be a challenge to ensure everything keeps moving forward. The revitalization agent will help to build those bridges.
It is important to impress upon the municipalities that we can do any project we want as long as we believe in it!
