CommunityMatters Call + $500 = Be There

The next CommunityMatters conference call on Thursday, August 22nd will feature Ed McMahon, Senior Fellow at the Urban Land Institute, and his “Secrets of Successful Communities.”

CommunityMatters is encouraging anyone – individuals, local organizations or community groups – to organize “listening parties” for people to come together, listen and discuss how Ed’s call relates to their city or town. As a bonus, the Orton Family Foundation is offering four (4) $500 awards to groups that hold parties and decide to take action as a result.

CommunityMatters helps cities and towns steward change by fostering “civic infrastructure” – the systems and structures that give people the power and the tools to solve their community’s problems and shape its future. NCDD is a CommunityMatters Partner, along with the Deliberative Democracy Consortium, Grassroots Grantmakers, New America Foundation, Orton Family Foundation, Project for Public Spaces, and Strong Towns.
