Keeping People Connected: A nuts-and-bolts toolkit for engaging residents, businesses, and property owners in problem-solving, decision-making and community-building is a resource that you can use in your work to help provide helpful, practical tips when engaging with the public. The toolkit starts with diagnostic tools that enable you to begin diagnosing challenges and enables you to determine the community’s starting place. The engagement strategies provides real world, practical examples of strategies that you can customize and utilize to engage the public.
