  • Practices that work in rural also are likely to work in cities , though the converse is not true.
  • As cities move to create livable communities, they draw upon many of the principles at heart based in rural community development

While cities grow increasingly indistinguishable from one another, small towns and rural areas offer a diversity that still represents the laboratory of community.” I think this is important point to stress in the set up. Then carry through out the webinars. Things that work in rural also are likely to work in cities , though the converse is not true.

  • As cities move to neighborhood approaches, livable communities etc, many of the principles are at heart based in rural community strengths. It would be great if Brian (and/or Tom) could set this up the first day -- as the lead in to the following three webinars.
