Rurban Solutions: Strategies for Small and Midsize Communities
Rural + Urban. What are the challenges faced -- and shared -- by small and midsize cities? Peer through the "rurban" lens: Explore strategies for integrating transportation, land use, energy and affordable housing. Learn how to improve choices for low- and moderate-income households to reduce transportation costs, connect workers to jobs and facilitate upward mobility. How can we create places that are vital and healthy? Look at local economies and public spending, as well as retrofitting urban transportation for rurban use. Much is written about large urban strategies. Discover solutions for the often-overlooked quieter corners of our nation, where placemaking is just as important for creating successful and rewarding lives.
