Community Actions & Needs

Community Actions can span a wide range of activities to improve the social fabric of the community, the personal or collective capacities of community members, or the physical landscape. The Platform provides a flexible tool for your community to track its efforts.

Community needs can include needs affecting public spaces (like parks or playgrounds), streets and sidewalks, as well as individual residents.

Community-building efforts to identify families or individuals can use the Platform to log needs, and manage the process of people signing up to address them.

See the Knowledgebase for more info on starting a:

  • Community survey
  • Community canvass
  • Neighborhood leadership circle
  • Neighborhood walk to identify needs (or rate quality of environment on each block using "Trained Observer Ratings")
