LUBRICATE YOUR COMMUNITY
Communities are complex. Opportunities and leaders can emerge anywhere, at any time. So can obstacles: natural disasters, loss of funding, NIMBYism, fear of change, pessimism, partisan politics, broken campaign promises, plans not implemented, projects delayed to death, bursts of revitalization that fizzle out, etc.
RISING PLACES Tools are designed to ensure progress, no matter what. They build on community strengths, and bypass impediments. The process of creating revitalization and resilience must itself be resilient to produce a steady flow.
Steady Progress. No Excuses.
WHY MOST REVITALIZATION & RESILIENCE EFFORTS FAIL
Revitalization and resilience are universal goals, but are too complex to be achieved within silos. Your community probably has talented economic developers, planners, designers, builders, developers and non-profits. You might have some visionary plans, projects, initiatives and leaders. But some key missing pieces are sabotaging success.
All of those players and activities can contribute to revitalization and resilience. None can achieve them alone. In fact, they usually can’t even succeed together.
They lack three crucial elements needed to deal with the complexities of
economic, social and environmental renewal:
1.) Informed Stakeholders: Engagement events like town halls, visioning workshops and design charrettes are well-intentioned, but are often feel-good exercises producing documents that rot on a shelf. A community cooperates effectively and moves forward together when all stakeholders (especially local youth) understand what needs to be achieved, and how to help achieve it. Education of a proven method is key.
2.) Ongoing Effort: Resilient prosperity doesn’t come from one-time projects or transient political administrations. It requires renewal momentum that constantly increases confidence in a better local future. That confidence builds resources by attracting residents, employers and investors, and by retaining those you have. Activation of actual projects is key.
3.) Real-time Feedback: Plans are usually obsolete the day they are published, becoming more so daily. Delayed feedback creates chaos. Leaders and residents alike need to know when the community is advancing, when it’s stalled, and when it’s receding. Monitoring of progress is key.
All three of those crucial missing pieces are provided by RISING PLACES Tools, which Educate, Activate and Monitor.
