"Storm Cunningham's RECONOMICS Process raises the bar for community and regional revitalization.
It's a powerful package, succinctly capturing the process that we have doggedly tried to identify over time, not always knowing the next step.
The RECONOMICS Process brings a holistic dimension to redevelopment, inextricably linking vision and task. "
– Eric Bonham (quote date: May 2019), Board member, Partnership for Water Sustainability in British Columbia.
Former Director, British Columbia Ministry of Environment. Former Director, British Columbia Ministry of Municipal Affairs.
"Most professionals specialize in only part of the complex community revitalization process. Incomplete efforts usually create messy, expensive, demoralizing failures. Few specialists understand how to bring a place back to life with a holistic approach. If anyone understands the complete revitalization process, it's Storm Cunningham. He's spent over a decade rigorously studying successes and failures worldwide. He can look at a community, regional, or organizational regeneration or redevelopment process, and quickly spot what's wrong...what's missing."
"Storm is the world’s Economic Medic: the planner, trainer, and guru for resilient, revitalized urban and regional futures. And who knows more about creating effective strategies and local “A-Teams” than a former Green Beret?"
