About this product
- DescriptionGrowing local ecomies, empowering communities, revitalizing downtowns, developing entrepreneurship, building leadership, and enhancing nprofits - you can achieve all these benefits and more with a comprehensive and strategic revitalization plan. Chronicling the struggle of local revitalization as organizers move from trial and error to effective revitalization strategies, Promoting Sustainable Local and Community Ecomic Development documents the current transformation in community revitalization from market-based incentives to mixed strategies of public sector learning, partnerships, and community capacity. Kwledge about the field and what works is growing, but t always publicized and readily accessible. This reference surveys the breadth of invative place and people development practices, presenting lessons and examples at a general and textured level, putting information about invative ways to change, influence, and improve the ecomic development process within easy reach. Roland Anglin brings his unique vantage point to the topic; his experience as a practitioner and applied academic allowed him to see how community ecomic development practices grow over time in size, scale, and impact. He highlights the difference between what is w termed community ecomic development (CED) and traditional local ecomic development practice, specifically the priority placed on community involvement in ecomic development partnerships between the private sector and government. The book includes case studies that demonstrate what has and has t worked in revitalization efforts, as well as how active public and private sector partnerships have been the most effective in revitalization efforts. A Resource Guide is included at the end of the book for readers who may want a more expansive understanding of community ecomic development.
