Clues to Rural Community Survival
1. Evidence of Community Pride: Successful communities are often showplaces of community care and attention, with neatly trimmed yards, public gardens, well kept parks. But pride also shows up in other ways, especially in community festivals and events that give residents an excuse to celebrate their community, its history & heritage.
2. Emphasis on Quality in Business & Community Life: People in successful communities believe that something worth doing is worth doing right. Facilities are built to last, and so are homes and other improvements. Newer brick additions to schools are common, for example, and businesses are built or expanded with attention to design and construction detail.
3. Willingness to Invest in the Future: Some of the brick and mortar investments are most apparent, but these communities also invest in their future in other ways. Residents invest time and energy in community improvement projects, and they concern themselves with how what they are doing today will impact on the lives of their children and grandchildren in the future.
4. Participatory Approach to Community Decision Making: Authoritarian models don't seem to exist in these communities, and power is deliberately shared. People still know who you need on your side to get something done, but even the most powerful of opinion leaders seem to work through the systems-formal as well as informal-to build consensus for what they want to do.
5. Cooperative Community Spirit: Successful rural communities devote more attention to cooperative activities than to fighting over what should be done and by whom. The stress is on working together toward a common goal and the focus is on positive results. They may spend a long time making a decision, and there may be disagreements along the way, but eventually, as one small town leader put it, "stuff does get done."
