Small cities have the foundation for 15-minute communities

 From Western Investor:

Smaller cities, towns, and villages have the potential to become 15-minute communities, where daily necessities are easily accessible within a short distance. Despite the misconception that this concept is new, many smaller communities already embody its principles.

The shift towards community-centric living and the desire for work-life balance, affordability, and access to amenities are driving the demand for 15-minute neighborhoods. This vision requires collaboration between the private sector and all levels of government, including the implementation of a housing strategy that addresses the need for more homes.
