I'm this way inclined too, actually.

My first thought is what are the existing community organisations and resources? The local schools, nurseries, places of worship, pubs, residents associations, political parties and representatives?

I think my preferred route would be through the local school(s): create a contest for teams of children within the schools to come up with and present bids for some or all the money on a 30-year timescale. (Maybe in several rounds depending on takeup). Get together a judging panel with representatives from all the existing local community orgs. Make an event of the finalist presentations in the biggest venue available locally, and invite local residents to come along, see the ideas and vote for a "people's pick" as well as the judging panel's pick.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
