CMP professor Danya Rumore’s research on western gateway communities is drawing attention from around the country. In the last month, her Journal of the American Planning Association article “Planning and Development Challenges in Western Gateway Communities” (which was co-authored with CMP graduate and University of Arizona professor Philip Stoker, CMP Ph.D. student Zacharia Levine, and University of Arizona Master of Planning student Lindsey Romaniello) was cited in media outlets including Fast Company, Forbes, Architectural Digest, and the Flathead Beacon as well as featured in @theU, Phy Org, and Science Magazine.
Dr. Rumore is the founder of the Gateway and Natural Amenity Region (GNAR) Initiative. She recently presented a webinar on planning and development challenges in western gateway communities as part of the GNAR Initiative’s “Boom Town: Amenity Migration in the Rural West and the Rise of the Zoom Town” speaker series. A recording of the webinar is available here.
