Strong Towns offers its congratulations to Carlisle, PA, winners of the 2016 Strongest Town Contest. In light of this, Chuck Marohn will pay them a visit to present their award and to give a Curbside Chat.
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. Mr. Marohn will also include a conversation about current road design practices, how road design relates to pedestrian safety, and how to design roadways that are safe for all, This presentation will be followed by Q&A.
This event is open to the public.
