First Impressions

First Impressions

The First Impressions community exchange program provides a structured process to give you an objective assessment of your community’s strengths and weaknesses through the eyes of a newcomer. With the assistance of professional facilitation, First Impressions communities use the knowledge gained from the exchange to create action plans that catalyze positive and effective community involvement and engagement. The First Impressions program can also be conducted by our downtown professionals with individual communities ready to get to work on their own.
