Community Heart & Soul is a resident-driven process that engages the entire population of a town in identifying what they love most about their community, what future they want for it, and how to achieve it.
Developed and field-tested over a decade in partnership with more than 90 small cities and towns across America, Community Heart & Soul is a proven process for engaging a community in shaping its future.
Jane Lafleur is the senior director of market development at Community Heart and Soul.
In this episode of the Rural Business Show, Lafleur shares why it’s important to bring a rural community together to “chart a course forward.” We discuss what it takes to help community members find common ground. And Lafleur talks about how rural stakeholders can turn plans into meaningful action.
