Charles Marohn will serve as opening plenary speaker at the Louisiana Smart Growth Conference.

Opening Plenary: Planning for Fiscal Responsibility and Longterm Prosperity

Time: 9am-9:45am

  • 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 presentation will cover better models for financial resilience and economic prosperity through the Strong Towns approach. Liberals, conservatives and everyone in between might find themselves nodding in unison as they learn more about Marohn's approach to planning and cities during this session.
