Starting in 2012, Solutions4Cities will launch a new feature called Cities at Work. This will be a periodic publication including interviews with Mayors and other community leaders about specific solutions, strategies, conditions and ideas that are making some or many aspects of a city great. Our focus will be on highlighting best practices, innovative approaches to pervasive problems, community groundswells and other unexpected ways that challenges have been effectively addressed. Look for the segment in mid to late January. Along with articles, mp3s and occasional videos of interviews will be available for download or on-line viewing and listening. If you would like to be informed when the first issue is posted, please use the contact page and subject line Cities at Work Update.
