Event description

Description

This event is for elected officials, government staff, business and institutional leaders, and others involved in municipal finance and infrastructure.

The director of Strong Towns, Chuck Marohn, PE, AICP, will give a presentation and lead a discussion about the financial health of our places.

• Why are our cities and towns so short of resources despite decades of robust growth?
• Why do we struggle at the local level just to maintain our basic infrastructure?
• What do we do now that the economy has changed so dramatically?

The answers lie in the way we have developed; the financial productivity of our places. This stunning presentation is a game-changer for communities looking to grow more resilient and obtain true prosperity during changing times.

Topics covered include: America's Suburban Experiment; the Growth Ponzi Scheme; the illusion of wealth; mechanisms of growth; and incremental and traditional development models.
