For Discovery, a community planning process is an important way for the local collaborative to catalyze change and engage those most affected in local decision-making. Therefore, the process of creating a community plan is as important as the product. A well-orchestrated and inclusive planning process that incorporates a diversity of perspectives can yield more creative solutions than those that rely only on experts. Community plans are most relevant when development is locally driven and implementation is broadly supported.
