Sustainable development has been defined as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” In short, sustainable communities focus on preservation of local resources in an effort to support overall community health and vitality.
Downtown districts, which often prominently feature a Main Street, serve as the social and economic crossroads in many towns across the state. They are places where communities congregate and celebrate, and where residents find unique, local goods and services.
Just as the strongest concrete is comprised of a rich and balanced mixture of materials, strength in communities often lies in the diversity of their citizenry. Diversity can be found through different political backgrounds, races, ages, genders and religious affiliations.
