Yilan Community Development 3.0
Yilan’s Liming Community
Situated in southeastern Yilan City, Liming Community gets its name, which means dawn, because it is located to the east and is first to see the sunrise. This is a low-lying area, so the community has seen its share of flooding. Construction of the Meifu Flood Control Channel improved the situation considerably. The old waterway was called Jiugang. Early residents planted freshwater mangrove to protect the riverbed and these along with ballast stone planks have become local characteristics. In recent years, locals have developed eco-friendly farming and a community group has received certification as an eco-friendly farming promotion team. Good land management in neighboring urban areas provides the community with a wonderful environment. As part of this project, the community performed a resource inventory of the local culture, land, industry and landscape. Following community excursions and citizen review meetings, residents proposed a community vision plan.
