Final Recommended Implementation Tools

Upon the endorsement of Concentrated Development Vision in April of 2012, Going Places Steering and Planning Advisory Committees convened monthly between April and November, 2013. Led by Ms. Della Rucker from the Wise Economy Workshop, committee members participated in a consensus driven process for the purpose of identifying and evaluating a series of implementation tools -specific programs and resources that would enhance local governments and other organizations their planning capacity and facilitate the implementation of Concentrated Development Vision.
