Charles Marohn will give a public presentation in Wichita sponsored by the Health ICT, Wichita Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, and the Health & Wellness Coalition of Wichita.
In this presentation, 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. Marohn will share 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.
A Q&A will follow the presentation.
