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.
