Step 3: Implementation

With the action plan approved, the work begins

Bookmark Livable Community

After the endorsement of the action plan, the next phase is implementation, which is when the community commits to moving forward. 

At the five-year mark the community is required to submit a progress report using the indicators that had been developed in the action plan. This process leads to a cycle of continuous improvement. As the action plan priorities are accomplished, new ones are identified and form the basis for additional planning and implementation.

Evaluation becomes an ongoing process as well, demonstrating progress against the baseline assessments previously identified. Evaluation helps determine ways to improve the action plan and demonstrate whether the strategies and action items are meeting the intended outcomes.
