COMMUNITY

It starts with a place that is loved, somewhere worth investing in.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

The Civic Hub sees communities as
untapped workshops of civic progress.

We are people who believe that thoughtful planning should lead to empowered communities, interconnected in ways that increase social capital.   We know that the more self-invested a civil society is, the better it will serve all of its members. 

Our goal is to leave the towns and neighborhoods where we work better places for it. 

We believe that citizens can create the community they desire, and we are proud to contribute meaningful dialogue, collaborative planning, technical support, and good old-fashioned elbow grease toward that end. 

Let's get started.
