First Steps

The process of making a Charter brings a community together around its long-term vision: not just what it doesn’t want, but what it values, the assets that it wants to protect and commits to stewarding for future generations.  The first step is to meet you and understand the issues you are concerned about. Then we help design and facilitate local resident meetings which gather consensus on your vision for the future and the local assets that you want to protect. The words of the community become the basis of your Charter.  Here is a basic Guide to making a Community Charter.
