I've been doing some guest blogging for the State of the Re:Union website. The latest in on Rancho Cordova's City Hall. State of the Re:Union is a public radio show that focuses on community and local culture. Click here to see the post.
Rancho Cordova was an All-America City Award winner in 2010. One of their three projects was their City Hall, where city government, the local chamber of commerce and an umbrella organization for nonprofit groups are all housed, a very concrete example of one of the main criteria for winning the award--cross sector collaboration.
While you're checking out that post, its definitely worth navigating around the SOTRU website and listening to some of their audio, for instance, a piece they did on Des Moines, also an All-America City winner in 2010.
