Recommendations for the State's First 'Livability' Study

Economics, environment and society -- the elements of the 'triple bottom line' are mutually-reinforcing,
pivotal factors in a community's quality of life, its livability. For most of the past year, students and staff members from Stephen F. Austin State University's Center for a Livable World have been on the ground in Kilgore, conducting research in their pilot livability study here, deconstructing the community in a myriad of ways, from housing, shopping, dining, parks, walkability, race relations, education, city services and more. Below are the findings of the study.
