WORKSHOP FOCUSES ON SMALL TOWN VITALITY
(Avoca) A workshop on small town vitality, open to community leaders and Pottawattamie County residents interested in community development, is scheduled for March 17-19 at the Neola Community Center. The workshop, sponsored in part by a grant from Iowa West Foundation, focuses on how small towns and rural communities can develop local assets to strengthen their economies, engage young people in community building, and strengthen their economies and human and financial resources for community development.
“This workshop is organized around the principles of a rural development framework known as HomeTown Competitives, of HTC,” said Lori Holste, Executive Director of the Western Iowa Development Association.
The HTC framework has been implemented in nearly a dozen states nationwide. The one in Neola is the first formal introduction of the HTC framework in Iowa.
