One response to “Smart Growth for Small Towns: The Bypass vs. Main Street

  1. Hi Phil. We have a project underway that aims at helping downtowns of small towns by linking them together into a network, then promoting that network to tourists seeking small towns experiences. It’s called smallwander.com.

    All the best,

    JD
