Saving Towns through Asset Revitalization
STAR is a statewide asset-based community development
(ABCD) project designed to support smart growth initiatives.
These initiatives are directed at underserved resource-limited but
resilient community development corporations, neighborhoods,
and municipalities. Collaboration with STAR provides opportunities
for the creation of nontraditional approaches and networks to use
the benefits of green space to bridge the generations for healthy
family and community life, and to strengthen holistic capacity
building, leadership development, and citizen participation
strategies of faith- and community-based organizations.
