Fostering Pride of Place Through Community Heart & Soul
Looking for a model to tap into the power of community pride and local history? Learn more about the Community Heart & Soul program. Representatives from Williamsport and Carlisle will describe how each town promoted citizen-engaged planning to foster preservation initiatives, followed by some hands-on experience with the Heart & Soul engagement process. Developed by the Orton Family Foundation and implemented throughout Pennsylvania through the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, Community Heart & Soul utilizes storytelling to engage residents in the planning process.
