It is not up to developers to solve a city’s problems. It is up to the people.
Fifth-generation Covingtonian Katie Mayer returned to her NKY hometown with a degree in Urban Policy and a newfound vision that cities could be solved like puzzles and improved upon incrementally. But how, exactly? Meyer, the executive director of the nonprofit Renaissance Covington, explains that it starts with seeing your relationship with a place differently and using your passions as power. Meyer goes on to illustrate how the community of Covington and its reputation are being revitalized through humble, incremental, inclusive, sustainable, and productive change, and that the same initiatives in ‘Love the Cov’ can be applied to any community.
