Using Arts and Culture to Strengthen Community Character

This is an idea that is central to our economic development and planning practice,  whether it is in small urban centers like Peekskill, NY or rural areas like the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor in the Adirondacks.  The American Planning Association has come out with a briefing paper outlining 4 key elements involved in this approach.  You can download it as a PDF here.

Laura Mandala and I will be discussing such issues as part of our key note panel at the Northeastern Economic Developers Association annual conference.
