How do we create livable communities? What factors contribute to a livable community? How should one define "livability?"
These are just a few of the questions ICMA is working on answering as a member of the Livability Intergovernmental Advisory Group, a new project being managed by the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC). Funded by the U.S. Department of Transportion, the project is looking at how to translate Federal agency livability principles into practical resources and tools for local governments and communities. Because this topic is so closely related to smart growth and sustainability, we're asking for ICMA members with an interest in these topics to consider participating on the Advisory Group which meets via conference call once a month.
