To encourage community participation in the project design and planning and involve the people who live in a community in deciding how it should be improved or how it should change over time.


Meet with immediate neighbors and local public officials to solicit input on the proposed project during the pre-conceptual design phase,


Host an open community meeting during conceptual design phase to solicit input on the proposed project,


Modify the project design as a direct result of community input, or if modifications are not made, explain why community input did not generate design improvements,


Work directly with community associations and/or other social networks of the community to advertise public meetings and generate comments on project design,


Establish ongoing means for communication between the developer and the community throughout the design, construction, and in cases where the developer maintains control of part or the entire project, postconstruction.
