About this map

Community Asset Mapping shows an overall look at the positive aspects of a community, including places, institutions, programs, and people.  

Here in Trenton, it is a way for you to learn about the valuable elements within your City, think positively about the place where you live and work, and recognize how other people see and experience your City as well. The Asset Map can also be used to promote the positive elements of the City to outsiders in order to draw more business and home owners, as well as people to come enjoy all that Trenton has to offer.

Through the process of identifying community assets, you begin to understand what beneficial resources Trenton has to support a sustainable economy, the environment, or promoting social equity in the community.  You also begin to identify opportunities to link, leverage, expand, or create new programs, organizations, activities, and businesses that support a sustainable future.
