CMSC Community Engagement Director Susan Westa, one of the lead staff and head guru on the Come Home to Downtown program, was recently asked to post an entry on the Partnership for Strong Communities’ Blog.  Susan wrote about how many towns are rediscovering the importance and livability of mixed use development, where shops, housing and work are all located within walking distance of each other.  This work, of course, is also at the heart of our new Come Home to Downtown program.  Click the link below to read Susan’s blog.
