Information About the Todd County Community Center

 Citizen Volunteer Thank You Luncheon [Click here to view full size picture] This Community Center for Todd County was created by citizens of Todd County who participated in a grant project entitled Building a Sense of Place.

The Building a Sense of Place process was designed by the Land Information Access Association (LIAA) to help inform and encourage leadership at the community level in focusing on the preservation of cultural and natural resources. Funded by the Joyce Foundation and LIAA, this project demonstrates a new approach to addressing the problems of suburban sprawl and urban redevelopment. By directly engaging public officials and citizens in the process of developing a community-focused information system known as the Community Center, the project improves public knowledge of land use change and the potentially adverse impacts of poorly planned developments, both locally and regionally.

Thank You! There were so many volunteers that helped compile information, took photographs and shared their ideas to help build this web site. With limited resources, there was no big party at the end of the information gathering phase, so once all of the information was posted we shared a lunch together and talked about the assets Todd County has to offer. There is a lot to appreciate for those that live here as well as those that come to visit. Thanks again to all of you that helped get this site started!

The Todd County Community Center is a comprehensive system for providing an extensive array of information about Todd County to the public. This information includes a geographically referenced asset inventory and useful analytical tools. The Community Center is designed to provide direct access to a broad set of digital maps and geographic analyses of the vicinity, as well as information about the history, community services, cultural resources, natural features, recreation, and business and industry. It also includes information about local government and related services of Todd County. The Community Center includes photographs and other multimedia options, as well as relevant links, all organized to help inform both public and private community planning and development decisions.

***Technical Tip - Browser Issues
LIAA Community Center software supports Netscape 4.7 or better and Internet Explorer 4.0 or better. We have actually tested the site using Netscape 4.7, Netscape 6.3, Internet Explorer 5.0, 5.5 and 6.0. We assume that by testing in Netscape 6.3, we include all browsers based on the Mozilla 1.0 engine. The only incompatibilities with these browsers that we currently know about are in the way Netscape 4.7 interprets some Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) code that we use (which usually manifests itself as an over large vertical dimension on some component tool links).
Because browser versions other than those in which we test are such a minority in the user marketplace, we have chosen not to spend valuable resources implementing support for those browser versions.
Both Netscape (and now Mozilla) and Internet Explorer offer free downloads of their latest browser versions, so these requirements do not represent a financial burden on the end user. We do acknowledge a technical burden, but that is true for anything having to do with PCs.
