How “livable” is the place you live?
Monday, September 07, 2015
You hear a lot about “livability” these days. But what is it, really? Most definitions include a mix of amenities, human-scaled infrastructure, employment opportunities, and other factors that contribute to a higher quality of life. (Check out this cool tool to see the “livability score” of your hometown: http://ow.ly/BP3Bn.)
Many rural communities are founded on the principles of livability. Here in Beatrice/Gage County, Nebraska, for instance, we have growing economy, walkable communities, and a small, but thriving, arts, entertainment, and dining scene. One of the favorite entertainment options here is the Community Players—a community theater offering local live theater. See The Razzle Dazzle Musical Classic "Chicago" coming this month!
