Shared vision drives economic vitality
It’s almost impossible to read the news and not find a story about a community in trouble. We hear about high unemployment rates and low graduation percentages, empty storefronts and crowded food banks. And yet, at the same time we hear about communities that are making it—expanding and attracting businesses, providing activities for their youth, and developing resources for their older population. How do some areas prosper in hard times, but others wither away? And most importantly—how can you make sure your town is one that flourishes?
