The Step 4 document does not have the Ideas. In the description it is written that there are 100 ideas inside this doc.

The 100 ideas of possible actions are contained in the community survey handbook.....on step one. The step 4 handbook assumes you have already decided to do a project so therefore it presents this handbook on that basis - how to take your idea and bring it to project stage and completion of your project.
