5 Year Community Plan
Neighbourhoods Alive! provides communities across Manitoba with the support they need to revitalize their neighbourhoods. Neighbourhoods Alive! recognizes that often the best ideas for neighbourhood revitalization come from the community itself. To understand the needs of the community, and to ensure that those ideas are heard, they call on the Neighbourhood Renewal Corporations to consult with the community and develop a 5 Year Community Plan. Within this plan, the community is to identify priorities under the 5 NA! Objectives. Communities are also encouraged to identify any other priorities that do not fit into these objectives, but matter to the community. The plan calls on the community to identify potential strategies that will move the priorities forward and partners that can work together to achieve results. This plan becomes a powerful tool for designated communities to focus revitalization efforts and bring together one voice for advocacy and change.
