Community Handbook Project

Do you know of any really good 'welcome to our community' booklets? Have you done one?

I'm looking for more than a listing of businesses or services (not a DEX.) I'd like to develop a template for a booklet which includes local history and culture, natural resource information, community norms (dogs on leash please!), etc.

I have a coastal neighborhood in mind which would also need tsunami evacuation and specific coastal hazard info. However, in true Extension fashion, the guide's template would have to be adaptable for other communities. I'd appreciate any advice or information you wish to share.
