Community Builders is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping local leaders create more livable communities in the American West: communities with strong and diverse economies, quality growth, vibrant downtowns, and complete neighborhoods. These are communities that offer people more choices in where they live and how they get around. They provide a quality of life that attracts talent, and the businesses that seek it. These are places where people feel they belong to a community and have a shared commitment to its future.

What We Do

We provide information, analysis, assistance and training to support the many local officials, developers, realtors, planners, and engaged citizens who are actively working to build stronger economies and more livable communities in the American West. Community Builders is a growing organization managing a variety of projects throughout the region.


Community Builders was founded in January 2016 by Clark Anderson, John Lavey, and Jillian Sutherland
