ECAP is a unique community engagement process proven to get people creating new and exciting possibilities for a brighter future. The ECAP approach is built around eight characteristics deemed critical for retaining and attracting people.

An Ashland resident said, “I was new to the community when the ECAP process began, and I frankly can’t imagine a better way to get to know a community in a hurry. I feel a sense of connection to and investment that it might have taken me months or years to achieve without this process.”

While the eight characteristics aren’t necessarily new or different, successful communities manage them with new and different approaches – approaches that require risk-taking and challenge the status quo…approaches deemed as being out-of-the-box…or ENTREPRENEURIAL!!
