Town Prospector

Urban Prospector

 

The New York City Master Plan – published in 1968 presented the community districts at that time a equivalent in population and total employment with cities throughout the United States, a distinction smaller cities only partially enjoyed.

Hopefully, the efforts of exploration outfits such as the Prospector  will bring attention to the enormous potential small towns and villages have in taking public leadership forward in “finding value in cities” — the tag line of this interesting new blog site.  The images presented are stimulating and demand attention.

If you are interested in making small urban centers work, have a look at The Urban Prospector  The issue is serious as this article by William H. Frey Senior Fellow, Metropolitan Policy Program on the “Population Slowdown for Small Town America” clearly illustrates.
