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.
