"Citizens are anxious to start building connections again. The question for their communities is this: who will lead the charge to restitch the fabric of their citizenry?

Particularly in the small towns where The Civic Hub often works, we see municipality after municipality reducing administration and removing departments that might have addressed such an effort in the past. And we understand, how the era of limited resources and the popularity of restricted power means that even the good that can come from government must be gone. But if it isn’t our cities and their staffs, our towns and their managers, our neighborhoods and their organizations, then who is going to sponsor and support and speak for a return to civic investment?"

"Towns are workshops for proving concept.

Towns matter, because they are the microcosm of all of the characters and components and criteria that we work so hard to quantify and organize, as we seek to enact change in our cities. There are hundreds upon hundreds of towns across America, ripe for influence and full of opportunity, if we are able to expand our collective definition of urbanism toward a more manageable scale and an equally worthy subject of attention."
