Community Development


Community Development is often thought of as the committee that fixes up old buildings.  But Community Development is so much more than that.  What is happening inside those buildings is also important.  Community gatherings, policy making, schools, events, training and support just to name a few, are the real back-bone of a City.   Community development is defined by the United Nations as “a process where the conditions of social and economic progress are created through participation within the community and reliance on community initiatives”.
