The Countryside Program, which helps rural communities in Northeast Ohio implement compact, well planned development that conserves land and natural areas, has found a new home at the Levin College of Urban Affairs at Cleveland State University. Previously, the program was sponsored by the Western Reserve Resource Conservation & Development Council.
The program's coordinator, Kirby Date, says, "We will continue to serve rural and exurban communities with education and technical assistance on land use issues, with a focus on sustainable practices. This new location will greatly increase our capacity to provide technical assistance, allow us to provide affordable education, and allow us to participate in research projects affecting Ohio rural and exurban communities."
