How To Get the Community to Your Community Space

Community spaces help to create a positive environment. Whether the area will be built for a neighborhood, school or workplace, bringing people together is a worthwhile goal. But, just because you build it doesn’t mean they will come. And, just because you have grand plans in your head doesn’t mean you have the money. Many community projects have a very tight budget. You need to be smart with the resources you have.

Work With the Space

You want to work with the space you are given, not against it. If you have a small piece of land sandwiched between buildings, then you may not want to build a basketball court. View the area with a critical eye and zero expectations. What will work best in this specific area? Maybe your community has a park by the water. You could look into adding one or two docks Palm Beach County FL. If the school wants to convert a courtyard into a space for the kids to hang out, then build some picnic tables and raised flower beds. If your initial plan for the community doesn’t fit the space you were given, don’t force it.

Use Available Resources 

The best way to complete a project under budget is to use the resources at your disposal. Ask around for contractors, craftsmen and business owners. They will be more likely to give you a good deal if they plan to use the space. Many businesses will happily donate to a worthy cause for the tax benefits and free advertising.

Include the Community

What better way to know what a community wants than to ask them? Talk to the people you want to attract about what they think the community could use. Involve them in the planning and building of the space. This gives people a vested interest in the project, which will only aid you in your goal.
