Resilient Communities flex and adapt to changing circumstances.
- Community Infrastructure - water, energy, transportation - demonstrate sustainability principles.
- NW region residents have the education and training necessary to support a sustainable future. Knowledge clusters in energy and innovation strengthen the regional economy.
- People will participate in government and politics as well as community organizations.
- Rural areas, small cities and urban neighborhoods throughout the state will be economically viable places for people to live and work.
More specifically, the NW RSDP board invites Ideas that address these priorities:
- Tourism projects, especially those focused on natural resources and cultural assets.
- Communities involved in Green Step Cities.
- Efforts linked to work force development, like STEM networks.
- Research and outreach for visitor profiles, impact of nature tourism and k-12 entrepreneurship.
The Resilient Communities Work Group meets regularly (scroll down to see schedule) to develop ideas, consider proposal and build a network of partners interested in the aspirations listed above. If you have an idea to share with the work group, please use the RSDP Idea Briefposted on the right.
Please see the NW RSDP calendar on the Northwest webpage for work group and board meeting dates.
Idea Briefs and Project Proposals are due to be submitted to Linda Kingery 14 days before Work Group meeting date. Locations to be announced.
