Musqueam Legacy Funding Decision Analysis

Date: 2010

EcoPlan conducted a rigorous analytical and community engagement process to determine how to utilize $17 million in 2010 Legacy Dollars. This project involved custom decision analysis and community involvement tools (including personal interview surveys, web-based surveys, focus groups and workshops) to align policy with community needs and values. An indicator of the success of the engagement process was a 2-to-1 vote on the Legacy project at a General Band Meeting, with not one member criticizing or questioning the results in the question period prior to the vote.
