Subject: Marin Named Knight Fellow in Community Building

This fellowship allows me to remain "in situ," which means I stay in Emmaus
and get sent to various places throughout the next year.  We met for the
first time in Miami two months ago and I'm headed to Yale and New Haven
tomorrow.  It's a good thing for Emmaus and the Lehigh Valley.  Joyce

Marin Named as Knight Fellow in Community Building

      Joyce K. Marin, a Member of the Emmaus Borough Council, has been
selected as one of twelve Fellows for the Knight Program in Community
Building based at the University of Miami's School of Architecture.  This
year's Knight Fellows include distinguished practitioners from the fields of
housing, community development, journalism, government, transportation, real
estate finance, community planning, smart growth, architecture and urban
design.  Each of them brings with them exciting ideas for bringing about
changes within their fields and their communities to create more livable

      Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Dean of the School of Architecture, state
that "Nominees were judged on the basis  of their demonstrated commitment to
community building issues, and their potential for advancing community
building initiatives and expertise within their communities and their

      Discussing the Knight Fellowship, Ms. Marin stated, "It is a great
honor to have been accepted into this program.  Over the course of the next
year I'll be exposed to the leading thinkers and practitioners from around
the country who know how to make communities livable.  I expect that I will
be able to use what I learn to help keep Emmaus a great place to live and

      The Knight Program in Community Building was designed to specifically
address complex problems associated with suburban sprawl, declining
inner-cities, and the revitalization of traditional villages, towns and urban
neighborhoods.  According to Charles Bohl, Director of the Community Building
Program, "The Community Building Program is aimed squarely at confronting the
many roadblocks that stand in the way of making our communities better places
to live and work."

      "The essence of the program is quite simple."  Bohl state, "In many
ways it takes a village to build a village.  It requires a wide range of
people and professions to build the types of streets, buildings, gathering
places and partnerships that provide us with a community identity and sense
of place."

      Through a series of intensive workshops and seminars, the Knight
Program will immerse this diverse group of professionals and future leaders
in cutting edge Smart Growth and New Urbanist theory, policy and practice.  
The Knight Fellows will also help organize a community design workshop in one
of the 26 Knight Communities to help create or revitalize an important
neighborhood or district.

      The fellowship program builds on the strengths of the University of
Miami's School of Architecture as an international leader in the planning and
design of livable communities and its role as a center for learning on New
Urbanism and Smart Growth.  The Community Building program was established
with funding provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
