Building Accessible Rural New Gateway Communities
Activity Code: S548
Date: Monday, April 15
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.
