Our new community development project is underway! We are hosting an introductory webinar that will share an overview of an exciting project we are involved in.
There are 3 of us from Eaton International Consulting Inc. (www.eatoninternationalconsulting.com), working on this study: Lee Tunstall, Ph.D., Vilma Dawson and me. We are studying strength-based community development in a number of Calgary’s North Central communities including:
- Harvest Hills
- Coventry Hills
- Country Hills
- Country Hills Village
- Panorama Hills
- Hidden Valley
Come and learn about a research project designed to find out what our communities’ strengths and assets are, what can be improved, and how. We are particularly interested in hearing your opinions about our strengths, some of the problems faced by our community, particularly in terms of space, and what solutions we can generate to build an even greater community.
There are plans for interviews with interested community members this fall and winter and roundtable discussions will take place in February 2013.
We are interested in hearing your voice! This is your community and your opinions, suggestions and advice will help create recommendations on how to move ahead with space issues in the community.
Join us on Thurs. November 29, 2012, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. for an online webinar explaining the project and how you can get involved. Space in the webinar is limited, so participants are asked to register at:
There is no cost to attend the webinar. Everyone is welcome. A computer with a sound card and high-speed Internet connection are necessary to join the webinar.
If you know someone who is interested in community development in these areas, please feel free to share this invitation with them. We can accommodate up to 100 people in the webinar and there is no cost to attend.
If you cannot make the webinar in person, a link will be available through the Northern Hills Community Association website afterwards.
