Linda talks on the importance of community engagement and her unique approach to finding out community priorities and keeping them informed.

“Teach about the problem, seek feedback on alternatives and Incorporate the public during implementation.”

Key Takeaways:

  • When making decisions that impact your community, never make assumptions. Always ask for input, even if they validate your assumptions.

  • Approach engagement in sections to ensure a holistic solution and successful implementation.

  • Help your community understand the problem you’re trying to solve, before asking for feedback on a solution.
