Thriving Communities

The Thriving Communities Initiative is an exciting opportunity for interested communities across the 16-county, tri-state Chattanooga region to participate in an accelerated forum to create an economic growth strategy for leveraging their unique, local assets found through arts and culture. 

Eight community teams made up of four local residents engaged in a professionally facilitated design thinking crash course in winter and spring, 2016. The results were three-year strategic plans to work with their communities to build upon specific assets.
