Enhance Your Score

Action plans scaled to the capacity of your community

  • Build your assets

When you strive to push your community from “good” to “best in class,” the CR Group can assist with a plan that transforms your community — not a study that sits on a shelf.

Building on the recommendations in your Asset Scorecard, we focus on the “how to” steps for implementation, including who should be involved, resources, tools, and advice on possible funding sources. These services are customized for your community.
