Strong Towns is opening eyes and introducing people to a powerful new way of looking at their own places. Here's what our members are saying.


People all over the country are dissatisfied with traffic, roads falling into disrepair and the inability of local governments to provide the most basic services. These are symptoms of financially insolvent communities. Strong Towns is unearthing the root causes of these symptoms while providing a foundation for the kind of rational responses needed to secure the future of the places we love.

For too long, the dominant narrative surrounding auto dominance was stuck in a certain mindset, overly focused on the environment and too emotional to attract a broad following. Strong Towns has taken the same concept and utterly transformed the messaging.

It’s not very often that you find someone who can speak in detail on subjects ranging from land development and transportation engineering to theology and economics.

Strong Towns calls into question underlying biases and assumptions that drive our current land use patterns, transportation solutions, etc. That questioning — fact-based, respectful, but relentless — is something I feel we must have in order to solve problems like gridlock, unsustainable infrastructure, and economic collapse of communities that threaten us.
— Maurice Carter of Covington, GA

This is the week to take that step and join a movement that is changing the conversation in America. We need your help.

I love my city. What Strong Towns does is that it adds reason to passion; it helps me understand why I not only love the ‘old and blighted’ blocks of my city, but why they are more valuable than the auto-oriented development patterns on the outskirts.
