A Return to ANC in Surrey: Bridgeview in Motion

Community Story by Anne Makhoul

The Bridgeview Action for Neighbourhood Change (ANC) project began in July 2005. Bridgeview was chosen because of its longstanding community association and “can do” attitude, but also because of its lack of resources and its physical isolation from the rest of Surrey.

As Makhoul shows in her article, the ANC’s main purpose is to help selected communities revitalize their neighbourhoods. ANC’s primary focus is community engagement, that is, bringing residents together to talk about problems in their community, create a vision, and establish a plan of action. In her article, the author captures the perceptions of residents, organization representatives and project staff who have worked to enrich and enliven the community.
