Communication with communities, stakeholders, businesses and local governments is the cornerstone of any successful initiative. Without an extensive public-participation process, any vision is stillborn. Communication can be complex, with interest groups naturally looking after their interests first. In small communities, often a survivalist mentality can be at odds with progress that is good for the collective. Thus, small steps must be taken and stakeholders must be informed every step of the way. They have to take ownership of any initiative to improve the town/city; making the march towards progress, their own path to take.
