Economically prostrate in the mid 1980s, the town of Revelstoke, B.C. has demonstrated how a small community can regain a say in its economic future. Its latest claim to fame: RCFC, a community-owned forest corporation that is managing to strike a balance between profitability, community interests, and provincial forestry standards. Shrewd leadership, solid research and advice, and a determined citizenry are turning back a generation of reliance on urban, corporate, and senior government decision-making. An appended article, 'Revelstoke's Entrepreneurial Community,' explains the strategy that mobilized local participation in the decision to launch RCFC.
