Contact Us at
Useful Community Development

Last Updated: December 23, 2021

The very best way to contact us is to use the e-mail form below.  We usually respond promptly to website business, inquiries about paid consulting work from one of the authors or this site, or other pressing business.  If there is a need for further interaction, we will give you further directions by e-mail.

We also listen patiently and thoughtfully to your general comments about the website or about a specific page.  If commenting on a specific page, please tell us which page, as the form does not show us where you were looking when you decided to make a comment. We may or may not answer you back when you just send us an opinion, but you can bet we will read and consider it.


Many visitors have started using this page to ask us for advice.  We will no longer respond to those requests, as we have a mechanism specifically for asking questions.  You can ask your question anonymously, or tell the world your name and city if you wish, by using the form on the Community Development Questions page.   We then answer on a new web page visible to everyone, but we send you the link at the time the answer is posted is on the web.

You also can share an experience with us and with the world by using the form on our Community Development Ideas page.

We look forward to getting to know our visitors!
