Host a Curbside Chat

If you would like to host a chat in your community, we would need you to provide enough meeting space for your public officials, members of the local media, officials invited from surrounding communities and others locally that may be interested in attending. Strong Towns will take care of the invitations, press releases and refreshments if you can provide the meeting space.
