Chuck Marohn will present at the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission's (TCRPC) Spring Symposium.
Date: Wednesday, May 9
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.
Transportation in the Next American City
Date: Thursday, May 10
Time: 8:30am - 2pm
Chuck's morning presentation, Transportation in the Next American City, brings the region into the national conversation about transportation spending and will help local decision-makers determine where to spend precious transportation dollars to get the best return on investment. Then a panel of experts will provide unique perspectives on successful active transportation projects and policies.
These events are both free and open to the public but registration is requested by May 2.
Note: The meet-up previously planned for Peoria has been cancelled.
