Chuck Marohn will speak as part of the City Center Series, hosted by the Downtown Partnership for Colorado Springs.

His talk focuses on how, with a limited budget, communities can build better infrastructure and resiliency for themselves. This “Neighborhoods First” approach says the best way to build a stronger town is by making small, incremental investments over time – not by waiting for change from the top down. By empowering active citizens, local officials, and ordinary people to identify high-return opportunities already available in their community, Marohn’s presentation focuses on strategies to build a town that addresses citizens’ real-world needs in financially sustainable ways.


Update 4/2/18: We're so excited to announce a special addition to this event. Following the presentation, Chuck will take part in a unique community conversation, where you'll have the opportunity to submit your best ideas for building a Strong Springs and compete for fabulous prizes. Join us at the Wild Goose Meeting House (401 N. Tejon St.) at 8:00pm or visit the facebook event to learn more. This segment of the event is free to attend.
