Part 2: Robert McNulty, president and CEO, Partners for Livable Communities, Washington, D.C. (10:24)
McNulty explains three simple factors that create the civic glue that holds strong communities together even in times of economic distress: physical beauty (including open spaces, parks, walkability), the presence of civic gathering spaces where people can meet comfortably, and a welcoming environment for newcomers. He also discusses the equation of how livability plus place equals jobs.
