Transformative community initiatives


This is an older indicator from TMT’s community survey, last conducted December 2007.  TMT is actively looking for partners to identify valid, consistent data for tracking.

Innovative improvement programs and major community transformations contribute to the long-term viability of the economy, positively impacting living and working in the region.

Surveying what major community transformations have made a positive impact in your life, living, and working in the region, suggest new or innovative programs that improve the community and contribute to the long-term viability of the economy, while also removing barriers to greater creativity for responsible citizens building vital communities. Although TMT has not been able to survey the wider community recently, there have certainly been numerous community transformations.  RGJ.com/rebirth tracked much of the good news.

Thanks to Artown, the Riverwalk District and the Reno Aces ballpark (and new Freighhouse District), Men’s Journal Magazine listed Reno in their top 25 best places to live in 2010. The magazine also listed Reno’s old southwest neighborhood, as one of the best in the west (see the latest national rankings for the region). And the accolades have continued, as recently as being ranked as one of the best places to live by Livability.com.
