Yilan Community Development 3.0
Tilling the fields, fertilizing, and thinning the branches: Community Development 3.0
If Yilan community development was a tree, after more than 20 years of growth, it would be lush with green foliage. To encourage the tree's roots to stretch further, Community Development 3.0's strategy of "tilling (inventorying community resources), fertilizing (ongoing counseling), and thinning the branches (moderating community strategy implementation)" will be implemented in two phases over four years.
In the first phase, we will revisit the results of previous efforts, inventory local resources, analyze various issues, and expand resident participation. Newly established communities can get a better understanding of local needs, while more mature communities have a chance to slow things down and examine past achievements and future goals, while continuing to build consensus and discuss residents' common vision for their community.
Then, the following year, communities can make a better assessment of their capabilities, conditions, and problems. By utilizing citizen participation and democratic review to draw up the phase two action plan, which will be rolled out in stages, the community together can build its own vision for the future.
Yilan Community Development 3.0 utilizes rolling community project counseling and policy guidance. At each stage, the program provides proposal and policy implementation workshops and matches communities with experts for long-term partnerships to assist communities to achieve growth and development.
