Ruston, LA



Strong Towns President Chuck Marohn will deliver a Curbside Chat as part of the 2019 Back to Your Roots conference.

In the Curbside Chat, we 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.

Details are still forthcoming and times are subject to change. Subscribe to Strong Towns emails for the latest updates on events in your area.
