Effective community engagement is becoming an integral component in how local governments conduct their affairs and it is now seen as a cornerstone of good governance. It serves both the municipality and community members to have policies, programs and services that reflect the expressed needs of the public. Undoubtedly, the work of the municipality is more acceptable to citizens if community engagement processes have been part of the overall decision making process.
Community engagement can provide insight and enhance knowledge, skills and resources, thus building the capacities of both community members and the local government to meet more complex challenges of the future.
The Town of Devon’s Community Engagement Framework contains theoretical, conceptual, and practical (how to) components intended to inform community engagement processes to be undertaken between the municipality and the community at large.
