What is Community Development? A Fishing Analogy…

(Originally published in the CFA Summer 2011 Newsletter)

Evidence of a community being transformed:

1. Shared Vision – Residents dream together

2. Sense of Community – A developing community pride.

3. Ownership – This is our community.

4. Emerging Leaders – Leadership comes from within.

5. Improving the uses of community resources, knowledge and skills.

6. Ongoing learning – We improve on what works best.

7. Shalom – Peace and joy cover the community.
