Building Communities

Our History: The Making of Building Communities, Inc.

See the Building Communities timeline.

The community and economic development theories, tools and practices currently being utilized by Building Communities are a product of over 25 years of work in the field of community and economic development. The Four Stages of Civic Condition Model was developed in 1995. The Community Organizer Assessment was first developed in 1998. The 25 Strategies were first inspired in 2005. We conducted our first Plan Week in 2011.

Today, Building Communities is:

We are motivated by the idea that we have invented economic development strategic planning. Sure, it has been done before, but never has a community-based set of tools, theories and practices been developed from scratch only thinking about the possibilities for communities. We hope to become a valuable part of your community's history.
