We believe in the new politics of partnership and collaboration.  With this approach, government leaders proactively work to inform, educate, and involve citizens on how to best move their community forward.  When citizens are invited to help both define and resolve difficult community issues, communities usually find better and more sustainable solutions.    We have a workbook for cities, counties, and other communities which can help you in this work.
