Remember that you have built an understanding of your topic and the discussion around it from your previous research. Now you need to start thinking about practical solutions and applications with a proposal and plan for a local audience. You do not have to start from scratch! Look at how other communities and institutions are working with your issue and see: how do they present it? Where do they get their data? What can be applied to your situation? What are the successes and barriers? In order to find these types of reports - commonly known as "grey literature" you need to become an expert internet searcher. The library also offers databases for newspaper articles and statistics in addition to academic journal articles.
