In advance of the Strong Towns North Texas Regional Gathering, Chuck Marohn will be at the University of Texas at Arlington on Wednesday, October 3rd, to deliver the quintessential Strong Towns presentation, the Curbside Chat. This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is requested below.
For more information on the rest of the gathering, which takes place in Plano on October 4th and 5th, visit our North Texas Gathering page.
7:00pm to 8:00pm: Curbside Chat
University of Texas at Arlington, Rosebud Theater.
In the Curbside Chat, Mr. Marohn will explain, in plain language, how so many American cities have found themselves in decline after decades of “growth.” The problem lies in the current model of development—one which values short-term gains over long-term prosperity. To strengthen our cities and ensure their economic success, we must look to traditional ways of building cities. In this presentation, we show how active citizens, local officials and design professionals can change the negative trajectory in their towns and help them to become more resilient—no matter what challenges lie ahead.
This core Strong Towns presentation is a game-changer for communities looking to grow more resilient in an uncertain future.
Please RSVP and get important information on parking at UT Arlington below.
