Good examples of communities that turned themselves around from the inside out. Important key principles for identifying the value that is hidden in a community, no matter how bad things appear. Great for encouraging leadership from within communities.

This book is how citizens and our local leaders can run a better community and work together for the future but not to forget about the good things form the past that still work. We only have 4 blocks of downtown but the leaders have made all new sidewalks, benches, and planters on Main Street for us and others to enjoy the downtown more.
