Be our Valentine!

What says LOVE more than civic activism?  Show some love for your neighborhood, your community and your region. Join Lehigh University Community Fellow, Kate Cavazza, and Coffee House Without Limits entrepreneur and internet sensation, Billy Mack this Saturday, Feb. 14th for a book discussion of this book, What To Do When It’s Your Turn (And It’s Always Your Turn) by Seth Godin.

We have extra copies of this transformative book, so don’t worry if you haven’t read it.  Plus, this one is quite a unique book.  This book doesn’t need much of a time commitment to change your perspective.  You can literally open it on any page and get a blast of inspiration.  If you want to hear from the author directly or order a copy of the book for your own library, click here.

If you don’t have anything going on this Saturday at 2 p.m., be our Valentine!  We’ll see you at the Coffee House Without Limits in the Alternative Gallery on 707 North 4th Street in Allentown (a stone’s throw to the C-Town grocery store on Tighlman Street.)

Billy Mack, local entrepreneur and owner of the Coffee House Without Limits would like to make you a coffee and talk to you about civic engagement

Moving Ideas to Action

4th Annual Summit for Smart Growth and Sustainable Communities
"Our Towns, Our Farms, Our Future"

Our 4th Annual Summit for Smart Growth was a huge success! We focused on social entrepreneurship and how to make sustainability legal. Check out the coverage of our event by The Morning Call here

SoCap and Ben Price of CELDF.

Last year on December 9th, 2016, almost 200 community leaders and concerned citizens gathered at the Renaissance Hotel in Allentown for RenewLV's fourth annual Summit for Smart Growth and Sustainable Communities to discuss social entrepreneurship and how to make sustainability legal. We also held table discussions that covered topics such as strategies for land preservation, community revitalization and municipal cooperation.

At last year's Summit, we asked the questions:

•How do you balance what appears to be competing interests: Doing good and making money?

•How does overbearing local, state or federal laws prevent us from preserving quality of life and/or supporting smart growth?

•How do we achieve local self-determination without giving up some of the laudable goals of regulations intended to provide quality of life and prosperity for all?

A big thank-you to all of the Summit for Smart Growth sponsors who contributed to last year's discussion! You made this event possible!
