A consortium was established in 2000 to develop a community-portal dynamic value constellation to provide opportunities for residents, community groups, businesses and services, and government agencies to access information, interact and to participate in developing an electronic community that fosters economic cooperation. A community-portal provides a platform to enable businesses, public sector agencies, and associations to provide services that support the growth and development of communities and individuals. Community portals have the potential to nurture a rich diversity of activities, resources and opportunities across a wide spectrum of interest groups, in particular the small business community.
