Strong Towns President Chuck Marohn will deliver a presentation in Portsmouth, NH entitled Pennywise Portsmouth: Balancing Costs and Community.
For more than six decades, local governments have been accustomed to building new transportation infrastructure, expanding existing systems in addition to constructing completely new facilities. While liabilities have grown, transportation funding has not kept up. Now there is a desperate need for local governments to shift from building to maintaining, from an approach that emphasizes expansion to one where we mature our use of existing investments. In difficult economic times, this is a scary, but necessary, realignment.
A Transportation in the Next American City presentation brings your community 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 your investment.
This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is requested below.
