A community development plans encourage the whole community by creating economic opportunities and employment and stimulates the urban communities and areas development. Both local and regional communities are looking for ways to strengthen their economies, ensure a better quality of life and make use of local resources. The many development plans for the community give priority to projects that deal with very excluded communities and projects where no other sources of funding can be accessed.
Several local communities are encountering challenges, such as rapid growth in the areas, as well as the decline in the number of local people. There are many examples of people in several regions developing art and cultural experience in their communities. Functional development plans can help local communities to achieve their growth and development objectives as it preserves the community identity.
In other words, many local communities unduly emphasize industrial recruitment without paying sufficient attention to improving quality of life in the local community. To integrate the society socially, people have the option to give back to the development of the community by helping in one way or the other. Successful local communities have developed a range of alternative approaches by leveraging limited resources and working with other communities, as well as by creating local associations, business networks, local programs and groups, and economic development organizations.
While a comprehensive development strategy is needed to improve the economy, attracting new companies should clearly belong to the whole approach. They must identify their unique assets, develop, and implement a strategic plan and establish strategic partnerships between stakeholders in the community and with those in the neighboring regions. A successful local area development strategy is an important element to encourage the local community to become a better place.
