WHY ACTIVE LIFESTYLE CULTURE IS IMPORTANT

If you look around the country today, you will see the results of an economic competition that is creating winners and losers in the quality of life battle, or what is becoming increasingly known as “livability”. In today's economy people are drawn to great places to live and work. People want to live in real, authentic communities that provide a true vibrancy of life which is based on each community’s unique cultural assets and environment. If you look closely at the communities that are winning in today’s economy, they are the ones that have provided their residents and visitors with fantastic access to the outdoors, healthy active living, and a growing economy that thrives in exciting environments. They are proving that the quickest and surest way for communities to transition from a 20th century manufacturing to a 21st century knowledge economy is to focus first on growing a vibrant, active lifestyle culture. We are seeing that the communities that are successfully transitioning are the earliest adopters of this culture. We believe that having and promoting an active lifestyle culture is disruptive to the status quo that can propel a community forward.
