Staff from the Public Policy Institute conducted a series of five regional forums around the state in 2015 to gather feedback from local leaders and residents about the past, present, and future of their respective communities. As part of these events, attendees participated in roundtable discussions around five questions about their community (self-selected as either urban, mid-sized, or rural/small town). This document is a summary of the recurring themes, common concerns, and general insights from those discussing their rural/small town communities.

The forums were held in Gary, Evansville, Indianapolis, Columbus, and Fort Wayne.
