Our Friday update here at kickstART farmington highlights some great articles we’ve read this week dealing with art, creative placemaking, and building great communities. You’re sure to find some inspiration to make our community even better!
1. On an organization’s “civic footprint”: Your civic footprint results from investing in the community; however, the amount of return on that investment is dependent upon how well the organization understands its community.

3. A review of Kaid Benfield’s book People Habitat: We’ll have to grow and build our way out of the problems left behind by the sprawl era, and we’ll have to do that by shaping cities and repairing suburbs to create places people really love.
