What traits distinguish a growing community?
By Byron McNutt

WHY ARE SOME communities considered successful, progressive and growing places, while others are stagnating or losing ground? Is it just luck? Is it the result of economic forces? What factors, other than economics, make a difference?

About 14 years ago, I came across an article in another newspaper about the research of Dr. Cornelia Flora, a former Kansas State University professor, on this subject. As we try to decide if the United States is coming out of the current economic crisis or is about to have a relapse, I thought it was important to take a look at Dr. Flora’s conclusions.
