A couple weeks ago, Chuck Marohn kicked off a series of articles on the topic of incremental growth. This Wednesday at 12pm CT he'll host an open Slack conversation to discuss these articles and any related questions.
Just log onto Slack and visit the #scheduled-slack-chat channel at the scheduled time to join Chuck and other Strong Towns staff, members and readers in a lively discussion. We'll see where the conversation takes us!
And if you're not signed up for Slack yet, take 30 seconds to do it and you'll be ready for Wednesday's chat.
Read our incremental development series:
Let's stop pretending we know the simple antidote to the painful symptoms our housing prices are expressing and instead humble ourselves to admit that we don't understand all the complexity.
As our cities experience decline and tension, as frayed budgets cut back on what governments are capable of delivering, people need to be allowed to turn the bad party in their cities, towns and neighborhoods into a good one.
We have come up with many ways to explain the decline we see around us. In reality, we've simply given our cities no other option.
Where improvement is not an option, stagnation and decline are all that remain.
It's the incremental nature of both the private and the public investments that made traditional cities strong, resilient and financially productive.
