  • Brain Gain

    February 24, 2016

    Room 313, Renville County Government Center

    THE BRAIN GAIN OF THE NEWCOMERS TO RURAL AMERICA February 24, 2016 Noon -1pm webinar, 1-2pm group discussion Renville County Government Center, 105 S. 5th St., room 313, Olivia The story of rural population change is interesting and nuanced – especially when we consider that 40% of all people move to a new home in any five year span. Since 1970 there have been newcomers aged 30-49 moving into small towns, which positively impacts our social and economic structures. The next 15-20 years appears to be a great opportunity for American small towns, as a once tight housing supply begins to open up through the changing residential preferences of the retiring baby boomer generation. Overall, as we look to the future, the implications of these changes are positive ones for all of our small towns and open country places. How can individuals, businesses, and government agencies work together to make Renville County the best it can be?
