Webinar – Making Sense of Place: Residential Outreach and Community Identification

What is it about a community that makes you want to live there and what factors will help assure that you will stay?  Sense of place is a concept that helps to explain why and how we identify with our communities that we live in.  The primary objective of community staff is to work to create and support an environment that residents can identify with as their own.  Whether it is community beautification, collaborative community events, walkable environments, or thriving downtown businesses, there is a lot that local government does to help assure that their residents value their community and that their community values them.  This webinar will provide several examples of existing projects in various communities where GIS was used to save community staff time, create community and resident transparency, and structure communities in an effective, valuable way.

We look forward to your participation and feedback. Please forward to whoever you think might be interested.
