With so much of our lives going online, day-to-day interactions have taken a hit. However, in our bigger, better, faster world of the twenty-first century, some fundamental requirements hold firm. We need relationships in our lives, we need places for restoration and regeneration, and we need community. Smart Communities is for all those people who have a say—or want a say—in the decisions affecting their community. The ideas will have more impact when they are taken as a whole. While each principle stands alone, all are necessary to achieve success. Further, the strategies will be most effective if they are understood and practiced by more than just a few people. They can prompt a community wide conversation about what is working and what needs to be changed. To be smart, communities must act smart. That requires new thinking and more action—together.
