'A STRATEGY FOR COLLABORATION'
Renaissance Hosts Program by Sullivan County Planning Division
November 3, 2004
[LIBERTY] – The Sullivan County Division of Planning and Community Development will conduct a seminar for Sullivan Renaissance entitled "A Strategy for Collaboration: Establishing Preconditions for Long-Term Community Sustainability" on Wednesday, November 10 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Liberty.
As Sullivan 2020 develops a comprehensive plan for the county's future, the process can reflect the goals and accomplishments of Sullivan Renaissance groups. The seminar will include information about how local communities can work with other programs and initiatives. Those interested in more planning and collaboration with municipal governments will also benefit.
The Planning Division will focus on the qualities needed by communities to move beautification projects to the next level, which is long-term community development. "The key is to emphasize the preconditions for a community's success," said Planning Commissioner Dr. William Pammer, "We're talking about planning elements like local community leadership, vision, organizational ability, prioritizing tasks, and the ability to execute tasks given available resources within a vision."
Sullivan Renaissance is a two-phase aesthetic improvement program, presented by the Beaverkill Foundation and Sullivan First. It has funded 125 projects in 5 villages and 15 towns in Sullivan County over the last four years. Details of the 2005 program will be announced in February. Grants are awarded in March with projects completed by August.
