Crista Gardner, 2013
Goals & objectives
Small communities in Oregon lack capacity to analyze and plan for the challenges that face them.
Some organizations offer planning assistance
But many are not aware of the needs of small communities
Nor do communities know about resources available to help them deal with their challenges.
Central umbrella organization - DLCD or non-profit
Leadership is an art and science focused on people
