Livestream Recap- Building Better Places Training

With Jillian Sutherland and Danielle Campbell

The American West is one of the fastest growing and rapidly changing parts of the country. While a lot of financial and policy solutions exist to address these problems, most communities lack the civic culture needed to put those solutions to work. The Building Better Places training helps local leaders develop the skills they need to effectively plan for growth and change. Over 2-1/2 days, community teams will cultivate leadership abilities and an understanding of planning, policy, development tools, community engagement and strategies for implementation.
 

Last week, Jillian and Danielle went live on social media to discuss the training and answer questions. We selected key sections of the livestream that adress common questions communities have about the training.
