You and your community, of course! While we are getting to know you and all of our communities and their members, we are always on the lookout for research and resources to help us better understand what a community is and can be. Here are some of our favorites:
McMillan & Chavis: Defining a Community's Developmental Path.
Soul of the Community study, Knight Foundation: Great schools, affordable health care, and safe streets all help create strong communities. But is there something deeper that draws people to a city – that makes them want to put down roots and build a life?
Community Canvas: A framework to help individuals build meaningful communities.
