The Action Handbook is designed to be a detailed how to manage manual for small communities undergoing or facing the prospect of accelerated growth. The recommendations and prescriptions may be of particular interest to small Rocky Mountain communities facing rapid growth due to the surge in energy development activities. However, the authors consider the material valid for a much broader range of communities in terms of both size and of the causes of growth. The handbook is divided into three parts for the reader's convenience. Part I is intended to give an overview of the community management process and to assist the user in estimating how development of a certain type might affect the community's needs for various public services, such as police officers, sewage treatment capacity, park land, etc. This part should be of interest to all those who wish to understand potential community impact, and especially those who would initiate community management and organization. Part II deals with approaches to getting the community involved and organized. It suggests a working model for the community organizers. Part III focuses on community action and growth management. This part will be of greatest interest to those closely involved in making government work to manage growth.
