Community Development is the process of building active and sustainable communities based on social justice and mutual respect. One of the most important aspects of Community Development is the participation of members of the developing community. Together, citizens can discuss the potential changes their community faces and the opportunities or threats such changes pose. They can establish a vision of what their community should be. The Division of Planning offers technical assistance and funding to help communities achieve these visions.
The Sullivan County Division of Planning, Community Development and Real Property offers several programs designed to improve the overall quality of the unique communities of the County.
