Event Details

Community Heart & Soul™ had its genesis in one planning commissioner’s frustration with business-as-usual planning. Orton Family Foundation founder Lyman Orton saw flaws in a development review system that left decisions that affected the entire community in the hands of a few. Community Heart & Soul shifts the paradigm by starting with deep community engagement that results in clear priorities based on what matters most to all residents.

Learn more about how this barn-raising approach to community development can benefit your town. Alece Montez Greigo, Orton director of programs, is joined by Rick Muriby, planning manager, Golden, Colorado, and Jane Lafleur, executive director, Friends of Midcoast Maine.

Heart and Soul has really changed my perspective on the applicants and working with them. I care more about the community. … So when somebody has a project, I want to work with them and find ways to meet the city regs while also meeting their needs, and it’s not just so much about process and paperwork anymore. … Heart and Soul really can be called long term planning the right way.” Kirsten Sackett, former director of building and planning, Cortez, Colorado.
