Curbside Chat (August 30, 5:30pm)

Location: Memorial Hall, 211 N Main St

The Curbside Chat is a presentation followed by a community-specific discussion about the financial health of our places.

  • Why are our cities and towns so short of resources despite decades of robust growth?
  • Why do we struggle at the local level just to maintain our basic infrastructure?
  • What do we do now that the economy has changed so dramatically?

The answers lie in the way we have developed; the financial productivity of our places. This stunning presentation is a game-changer for communities looking to grow more resilient and obtain true prosperity during changing times.

All events are free and open to the public.
