Abstract


This paper aimed to explore a new methodology for vision making and sharing of a local municipality. The study explored using the residents’ sense of place as a key element of the vision for the local town in order to ease the conflict or discomfort that can arise among diverse populations of merged municipalities. A method named Visioning with Sense of Place was developed for this study. Analyses identified that the visioning process stimulated the participants to develop a broader sense of place with the new town.


Keywords: Municipal merger, vision, sense of place, correspondence analysis
