STAKEHOLDERS PARTNER FOR NIGHTLIFE SOLUTIONS

SOCIABLE CITIES require an alliance of diverse stakeholders to facilitate vibrancy and safety. Alliances play an advisory role on resource allocation and consensus-driven action teams.

DEDICATED RESOURCES are needed to maintain the critical balance of vibrancy and safety in the nighttime economy. This includes staff from key departments and agencies and upgrades to infrastructure and policy to match the district's stage of development.

 

ACTION TEAMS exist to oversee a process to define short and long term objectives, identify available resources and implement an Action Plan for each of the Sociable City Building Blocks.
