Have You Seen the Rural America Placemaking Toolkit?

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)'s Rural Development and the University of Kentucky’s Community and Economic Development Initiative of Kentucky unveiled a free digital toolkit to help rural leaders build placemaking plans in small towns and communities across America. 

If you are located in (or serve) a rural area and you are are looking for a free digital toolkit filled with amazing resources, please 

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the University of Kentucky’s - Community and Economic Development Initiative of Kentucky just debuted their "Rural America Placemaking Toolkit".

This toolkit is absolutely dynamic and I encourage academic and practitioners to utilize this amazing guide. It includes:

Creative Community Conversations

Community & Cultural Assessments

Public Spaces & Gathering Places

Cross-Sector Partnerships

Here's the "Get Started" Guide (Read This First).

Also, if you have a rural project that you would like to be considered for the toolkit, you can submit it here.
*The Rural Communication Institute actually plans to do this soon.

Think about sending this guide to a local mayor, commissioner, teacher, health worker, volunteer, etc.

It is an absolutely incredible resource.
