2016 Love of Cities Tour
As a partner in the Government Performance Consortium (GPC) initiative, we want to share a new mini-documentary video about the Love of Cities Tour in Washington State, which has sparked tremendous excitement across our state for new ways to connect cities and residents in co-creating more vibrant, healthy and resilient communities.  We hope that this video provides you with some inspiration on how to improve your own local government internally and externally.  You can read more about For the Love of Cities here, as well as watch the video.
