In a previous post, I told you about a project APWA's Center for Sustainability has been participating in with several of our partners, including The National Association of Regional Councils (NARC) , the National Association of Counties (NACo), the National League of Cities (NLC), and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA). Shortly before the end of the year we announce the release of a new livability resource, Livability Literature Review: A Synthesis of Current Practice. This new comprehensive report describes how livability is understood, provides examples of livable communities in practice, and adds clarity to several concepts.
In order to build and improve upon the work of the partnership, we are still seeking case studies that showcase how you are creating more livable communities. We have put together a simple survey monkey form for you to use to submit your stories today. These case studies will showcase the important work in which your community is engaged and help future communities create more livable communities. Click HERE to share your case study.
