Mike Knutson of Reimagine Rural shares great research from Michigan State University’s Land Policy Institute about what makes small towns cool. Unfortunately the study itself does not include any South Dakota communities, but Mike highlights one of design:SD’s communities, Hill City, as a cool South Dakota community. Thanks for thinking of Hill City, Mike. I think everyone on the design team would agree!
And, if you’re a community who’s looking for a little “cool,” consider a design South Dakota visit to your community. We’re looking for a place to land, Fall of 2010!
