My name is Heather and I am fairly new to urban planning and community revitalization and all that fun stuff, but I am quickly becoming obessessed with all of it.
I don't really have much to say. Just wanted to introduce all who may not know to an organization called the Rocky Mountain Institute. I'm not affliated with it, but I think it is pretty awesome. Recently I found a book they have published at the library about how to organize groups to revitalize local economies and do so in a sustainable manner. Anyway. This post is pretty pointless except to provide a link to their website for more information if anyone is interested.
