The Savannah Urbanism Series: Dollars and Sense of Urbanism
On Thursday, February 25, join us to see how proactive planning sets the stage not just for beauty and walkability, but also for economic prosperity.
Throughout the country, people are seeking walkable, urban neighborhoods in which to live and work. Savannah, GA is a prime example of a thriving downtown in tremendous demand by residents and visitors alike. The Savannah Urbanism Series considers the difficult questions that are presented by growth, change, and our patterns of development.
"The Dollars and Sense of Urbanism” will explore how planning, design, and development patterns impact a community's financial health. Our choices in envisioning the future can help or hurt our bottom line, in ways not often considered. As we plan for future infrastructure and development, come be part of the conversation to discuss how to maximize our own economic opportunity and quality of life.
Chuck Marohn (Strong Towns) and Joe Minicozzi (Urban 3) are both highly sought-after national speakers, taking on a range of urban design, planning and policy issues in a frank and entertaining manner. In their presentations, they will challenge perceptions on the market forces and policies shaping our cities. In their own unique ways, they will demonstrate why thoughtful planning matters, and how it benefits our everyday lives.
