On a regular basis, the U.S. Conference of Mayors works to release new best practice profiles which look at what different American cities are doing to improve various aspects of life. This corner of the Conference's site brings all of these documents together in one place for urban policy types and those people who care about the future of cities. Many of these profiles are written by city mayors, and some of the more recent entries include vignettes on single stream recycling, public school outreach efforts, and the benefits of long-term financial planning. The profiles are joined by dozens of other documents dating back to 1999, including "Community Development Block Grant Success Stories" and several timely reports on community policing. It's a solid resource all around and one that is worth keeping tabs on for future consideration.
