SOCIABLE CITIES require an alliance of diverse stakeholders to facilitate vibrancy and safety. Alliances play a critical role in guiding the evolution of a city’s burgeoning nightlife by trendspotting, allocating resources and overseeing implementation of strategies developed by 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.
HOW DOES YOUR CITY PLAN FOR NIGHTTIME SOCIAL ACTIVITY?
CRITICAL STAKEHOLDERS FORM AN ALLIANCE BY BUILDING "ACTION TEAMS"
A NIGHTTIME ALLIANCE with a dedicated manager convenes Action Teams to guide change. Alliance members will see progress as meeting the needs of the situation, rather than just their own, and be comfortable working outside the boundaries of existing institutional policy and actions.
