Welcome to the Sustainability Project:
Small towns are struggling! Faced with aging infrastructure, depleting resources, and limited funds, communities need supports to turn things around. For many communities, it seems like they may be doomed already, just going through the motions, firm in the belief that there is nothing that can be done. I disagree. We are not dead yet. We just need some support.
I can offer those supports.
Business Engagement and Support:
Supporting existing businesses on a one to one basis, and through community training and support for local entrepreneurs helps create jobs. The biggest percentage of economic development comes from people who already live and work in your community! We help you help them to expand and grow!
Councils and citizens working together are the key to sustainable communities. Connecting to the larger community, accessing resources that can help your local community, are so important. We can help bring the community together.
Asset management goes beyond the legislated requirement, and beyond the pipes under the ground. Good asset management requires communities to know what needs to be fixed, to understand the costs, and to come up with a plan that includes how we are going to pay those costs. Good asset management is a key to communities who plan to provide services at an acceptable level of service, now and into the future.
Arts and Cultural Supports:
Creative people do wonderful things for communities. The arts and cultural community creates thousands of jobs, provides tourism opportunities, and tend to be active volunteers. We help them find money, create partnerships, and hold events.
We have resources, and we bring those resources together to help support you, where you are.
