We're taking a long weekend and will be back with fresh content on Wednesday, July 5. But before we go, I wanted to leave you with one of my favorite Strong Towns videos ever. It's an oldy but goody from 2013.

Chuck Marohn (President of Strong Towns), joins friends and colleagues, Joe Minicozzi and Joshua McCarty from Urban3 for an on-site discussion about a puzzling but all too common design flaw in a classic American city: Chapel Hill, NC.
