Chuck Marohn will serve as keynote speaker at the annual conference for Quebec’s Institute of Professional Planners: "La Viabilité Économique de nos Collectivités par L'Aménagement Durable du Territoire."
Mr. Marohn's presentation will consider the central question: Why are so many cities and towns across North America going broke despite decades of growth? Our roads are deteriorating. Our governments are in debt. No matter how much we increase them, our taxes aren’t enough to fix it all. And no one seems to be able to agree on how we got here—much less how to change the course. If we want our cities to be strong and resilient we need to change everything about the way we plan and build our places. This presentation explains how so many North American cities have found themselves in decline after decades of “growth.” And then shows a revolutionary way forward that could create enduring prosperity for cities across the continent.
