Division Responsibilities & 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
