Community Engagement


Why Community Engagement?

Community engagement refers to the various methods of informing and involving the public in the decisions and actions of local government. For this reason, community engagement is an important aspect of local government service. By effectively engaging the community, government agencies are better able to address the values, needs, and concerns of the public while also ensuring transparency and accountability.
