Strong Towns, Strong Futures
It's the economy, stupid - we got that. But it's tougher than you'd think for towns to make the right economic choices. When it comes to planning, development and land use, communities make a lot of decisions that are designed to fuel prosperity, but in reality only cost us in money and quality of life. The tremendous 20th Century experiment of rapid growth and suburbanization may have brought some short term booms, but the long-term bust could bankrupt our towns, our landscapes, and our sense of community. Join leading author and economic thinker Chuck Marohn for a candid conversation based on his new book, Thoughts on Building Strong Towns.
