From an urban planning perspective, this can include anything that may be needed to encourage effective community engagement, such as social media management, website creation, as well as general branding and design. We’ve found that community members lend more trust to processes that are well put together, which includes the visual materials provided and distributed through the neighborhood. Additionally, social media can serve as a great medium for connecting to the younger community members to obtain the often missed youth opinion.
