    Recommended reads?

    Are there any "must read" recommendations out there on rural and small town planning?

    Despite its boring title, this one is a pretty good read Rural Environmental Planning for Sustainable Communities: http://islandpress.org/bookstore/det...ml?prod_id=121

    Its a series of case studies and has plenty of non-environmental stuff in there, too. Not sure which four corners you are residing among, but if its in the southwest, this book has some examples from northern New Mexico that might ring true. I am fond of the example from Tierra Amarilla that outlines how the Tierra Wools collective was established.

    I agree, a must read.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Sweet! This sounds excellent! I'm in the Colorado corner, but close to NM. I remember learning about the Tierra Amarillo wool project many years ago in Sociology class as an undergrad. Can't wait to check it out!
