There have been many interesting and provocative “ON BEING” programs in the past. This show “Evolving City” was not one of them. Most of these 12 steps define an American life style applicable to 1950’s thinking, not to the realities of today’s communities, especially our older ones. I see no relationship here to state, county or city governments, as those are where regulations are establish and enacted. None of this material appears to have been validated against such measures. I have spent years trying to get community consensus to “trickle-up”, rather than governmental power “trickle-down.” Power is usually unfairly applied, or even denies the right thing to do, especially now. To see that this study has not taken into account those existing rules is really disarming.
May I suggest you find other sources that have a clear idea on how to help communities?
