A "community" is comprised of the residents, businesses and stakeholders that benefit from and support it. Differing needs, cultures, expectations and perceptions become barriers to meeting mutually-benefiting outcomes.
Community Development & Benefits, LLC can engage communities to gather feedback, to inform, to gain buy-in, to foster conversations, to develop alliance groups and to nurture unity.
P3 = Public-Private Partnership projects are efforts between public entities (i.e. governments) and private entities that involves shared risks, innovative ideas and shared goals. Includes: commercial, industrial & housing development.
Community Development & Benefits, LLC can assess community needs, rally community support, connect local organizations & groups, and communicate project benefits & limitations.
As governments balance growing responsibilities and remaining resources, "community benefits" programs (CBP) become tools used to improve the "quality of life" for residents; via capital & P3 projects and local participation efforts.
Community Development & Benefits, LLC can gather & analyze community data, identify local/minority vendors, conduct monitoring and meet reporting requirements.
