Growing Together: Consensus Building, Smart Growth, and Community Change
Many communities are finding the issue of how to grow a divisive one. This film offers an alternative to the discord and stalemate that too often occurs over how to approach change as a community - "consensus building." Speaking in their own words, community officials, concerned citizens, and developers of smart growth and revitalization projects discuss how difficult issues can be approached collaboratively to find successful paths for change, using principles discussed by consensus-building experts. Included is a written guide to using the film to spur community discussion about how to approach growth challenges.
