Community Development in Small Communities
The Re-Charge Program is designed for use where a Take Charge process has already been delivered. With the regional approach, where groups of towns want to address regional issues, it is important that the region has gone through a Take Charge as a region prior to Re-Charge. The Take Charge includes a session on demographics, and all parties of the regional Re-Charge should be familiar with the differences between towns in their region if they are to adequately address issues common to the region.
