In the Mountain West, building rural communities to last presents complex challenges: How to foster a robust economy and good jobs; healthy families and well-educated children; thriving forests and clean water; and a high quality of life for all citizens? How can this region prepare for inevitable change without sacrificing what makes it so special? Over the next six months, seven news organizations in Colorado and New Mexico, including High Country News, will explore these urgent questions, surfacing threats to the long-term health of the region's small towns — and examining promising responses.
