If These Walls Could Talk

Community Visioning

A keystone of our mission, community visioning strengthens communities and is the backbone of a great town's success. We work in depth to unveil a town's true heart and soul to ensure that plans for the future embrace local core values and needs.

Preservation Corps

Debuting last summer (2020), Great Towns Preservation Corps provides Hoosiers, 18-24, an experiential and service-learning opportunity.  This program  introduced traditional historic preservation trade skills as a career pathway for work that is highly in demand.

Affinity Building Strategies

The most economically successful communities are those where a citizen's love for their hometown is strong. As in any relationship, it is the little things that make a big difference --and your town great!

Design for Small Towns

Attractive places ATTRACT people and recent research implies that the built environment impacts your community. We can help citizens develop design and zoning guidelines that protect character and authenticity.

Recreational Strategies

Does your town offer a variety of recreational opportunities for all ages? We can facilitate public meetings with Boomers to Gen Z to help determine what's missing, and what's possible to keep  all ages active.
