COMMUNITY BUILDING & STRATEGIC PLANNING
The Lonsdale Group initiates and manages strategic projects with multiple stakeholders to develop consensus and implement projects, which address future challenges facing municipalities in terms of community programming and aging public infrastructure. The goal of these projects is to build capacity within the city through strategic community-based initiatives.
We initiate and manage strategic projects to develop a coherent plan with the objective of securing support and/or funding from one or more levels of government, recognizing the diverse interests of community stakeholders. We work with organisations such as school boards, community groups, municipal departments, and all levels of government during the planning process. Then we manage the project by acting as a bridge between governments, government agencies, bureaucrats, stakeholders, designers and builders to increase the capacity and efficacy of community programming and public infrastructure assets.
We manage strategic initiatives on behalf of government departments, agencies and Non-government Organizations (NGOs), to help them manage more flexibly and more effectively. We work with landowners, stakeholders, developers and construction managers to complete community infrastructure projects. We prepare and implement workplans; establish funding, programming and service partnerships with public and private sector stakeholders; hire and manage experts in detailed design, finance and engineering.
