After I spoke at the Rust Belt to Artist Belt conference in Detroit, a group from Wayne, Michigan decided to start a blog called “For the Love of Wayne.” The blog “lets local people share their personal stories about why they love Wayne.”
They write: This blog is a project of the Wayne Ripple Effect, a group of volunteer citizens dedicated to revitalization for the City of Wayne and was inspired by the book “For the Love of Cities” by Peter Kageyama.
I love it when ideas turn into action and they allowed me to do a guest post for the blog. Congratulations Wayne, Michigan and keep up the love!
Parks & Rec is known for being the "fun" department, but they are also part of the health and wellness side of the city.
Data-supported evidence is mounting that parks improve public health — leaders in parks and recreation are incorporating that information as they plan and design new community parks, green spaces and transportation options.
Thanks for the t-shirt! With Mobile, Alabama Mayor Sandy Stimpson.
