  • Accessing local food
  • Providing for the needs of children and seniors
  • Cultivating job opportunities
  • Tackling climate change and energy conservation
  • Protecting working landscapes
  • Addressing transportation needs and alternatives
  • Ensuring adequate healthcare
  • Adding resiliency to your community toolbox, or
  • Being creative in other ways to better community life
