Community Resource Development.
Beisdorf, Heinz; And Others
In New York State, Cooperative Extension's principal goal in community resource development is, through education, to increase the effectiveness in making and implementing public decisions concerning improvements in the quality and level of living of all people. Education and adaptive research are the two basic roles Extension will use to achieve that goal. The Task Force recommends, among other things, that: when practical, Extension faculty positions concerned with community resource development also involve research; the scope of Extension's program consist of four main categories--community organization and administration, community functions and services, natural resource utilization, and physical environmental improvement; the primary target clientele for the Cooperative Extension program in community resource development be key individuals and groups of community leaders who influence the community's future; regional specialists be used in identified metropolitan areas.
