NoMi Revitalization Featured in National Housing Journal!

Prompted in part by HUD Secretary Donovan's visit to NoMi last summer, the prominent National Housing Institute journal "Shelterforce" tells the story of the kinds of collaborative partnerships that have brought about success in places like the Hawthorne EcoVillage and Jordan's Cottage Park.
The article is titled, "The 'Minnesota Nice': A Culture of Collaboration." This would have been published on JNS much earlier, but Shelterforce clings somewhat to the "dead tree format" in that its online edition lags several months behind what is available in print.
The publication has all sorts of mortgage geeky, policy wonkish articles that seem like they were written with me personally in mind. But of course the best one is the one that profiles the EcoVillage and Cottage Park clusters.
