Some towns continue to shrink, but many Iowans are choosing to stay. Those left behind work to keep their communities going.  (The Gazette, 6/24/2018)
Peters’ report identified 12 communities in the state managing to “shrink smart” — a list that includes Bancroft. Other communities listed include Allerton, Correctionville, Elk Horn, Elma, Everly, Grand Mound, Hamburg, Mediapolis, Pacific Junction, Radcliffe and Sac City. 
Among other attributes, shrink smart towns are closely tied to agriculture and have managed to grow their industrial employment base, have high participation in local programs and civic organizations, are “better-kept, more open to new ideas, more trusting and viewed as safer places.”
