Beautification Program for Small Communities in Maryland. A Handbook for Community Improvement.
Ryden, Einar R., Ed.; And Others
The handbook is available to assist small communities with limited resources in planning, initiating, and carrying out a beautification or community development program. Evidence is provided of results which can be obtained when individual citizens and groups are given opportunities to participate, use their special skills, and become involved in a total community effort. The handbook outlines a step by step method for conducting and evaluating a development program. As a guide, the model of the Mount Savage, Maryland, program is discussed in detail. Methods and suggestions are given which may be immediately applicable or easily adaptable to specific needs of other small communities. Included are photographs, program agendas, and maps used in the Mount Savage program. Also included is a section of detailed technical instructions for the various committees and a format of forms used. A supporting agency guide is given in the appendices.
