The ACE process begins with Phase I, known as the assessment phase.  


During this phase an ACE Team comprised of experts from a diverse range of professions and community involvement, visits, observes and evaluates the community to develop a comprehensive view or impression of the City.    


The ACE Team's evaluation of the City is based on information obtained through a community survey, public open-forum community meetings, touring the City and talking with residents and business owners.  Through their observations and meetings the team will identify the City's assets and weakness. 

Based on the information and impressions received during the assessment visit, the ACE Team prepares an Assessment Report summarizing the Team’s findings and impressions and outlining several recommendations for the municipality’s consideration. 

This approach gives unbiased insights into the community from an outside perspective.
