Review for Missoula Urban Demonstration Project, Missoula, MT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been involved with MUD for more than 11 years. First as a very sporadic volunteer, then a Board member for 4 years, back to a sporadic volunteer, and now as a dedicated Tool Library user. MUD has been many things during its lifespan. It will never be a traditional success nor approach perfection, yet it continues to sustain, adapt, and inspire. Thus it has achieved a paradoxical manner of success and perfection I deeply admire.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The MANY, MANY times I have saved time and more through use of tool library check outs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Never hold another strategic planning session. EVER! Planning was meant for and should be restricted to penance for government agencies and corporate boards. Dream, theorize, talk it through, try it, keep it going or start again. That's MUD. That's how it works best.

Role:  Volunteer & Lots of stuff, including the transport of more llama manure than should be allowed by law.
