Building Accessible Rural New Gateway Communities

Date: Monday, April 15

Begins: 1:00PM

Ends: 2:15PM

Activity Code: S548

Room: Regency C

Track: Protecting Small Towns and Rural Character Track

Leaders of rural new gateway communities frequently cite newcomer integration, as measured by active participation in governance, as an important goal. And while opportunities for participation exist, many traditional mechanisms for interaction remain inaccessible to newcomers. This session examines a deliberate orientation process that can accelerate a newcomer’s understanding of municipal resources—and thereby hasten integration and inclusionary governance.
