The Strong Towns staff and board are convening for an annual meeting for the next three days, so we'll be taking a short break from content in order to focus on planning for 2017 and beyond.
We'll be back to our usual schedule on Monday. Have a great weekend and in the meantime, you can check out some of our most popular content from the last few weeks below.
If we took the entire Strong Towns Strength Test and boiled it down to one indicator, it would be parking minimums. If you can't figure out how to get rid of them, your town isn't strong.
Let's make a final push today to get to 2000 members. We can do it. And then we'll continue to do great things together.
Our cities are struggling financially. But culturally, we lack a common understanding to explain why this is, let alone decide what to do about it.
What the Strong Towns movement needs to do is change our cultural understanding about growth, development and the way we invest in our places.
This week, we focused on housing, big box stores and bike-friendly cities.
Across the nation, cities are expanding stand-alone bike lanes into full networks everyday people actually like to use.
Big box developments are not paying their fair share.
The sad truth is that, regardless of motives, the ban on low-quality housing has hurt most of those who it was supposed to help.
This week we highlighted some of the best content we've ever published.
