About Chuck Marohn:
Chuck Marohn is the founder of Strong Towns, a media organization leading a national movement for change. Strong Towns is challenging every American to fundamentally rethink how our cities are built, and shining a spotlight on an approach that will make us truly prosperous.

Strong Towns began in 2008 as the blog of civil engineer Charles Marohn. After more than a decade in the profession, he noticed something that disturbed him. The cities and towns he worked with were going broke. Even though they were growing, local governments were going deeper and deeper into debt just to keep their basic services up and running. And yet they were still building more roads, pouring more concrete, and green-lighting more massive development projects — projects he had helped design. Strong Towns has blossomed from one man questioning the dominant point of view into a national media organization that challenges everything about the way we build our world — and shows you ways to build it better. Over the years, we’ve developed a dedicated staff, a following of hundreds of thousands of people around the world, and an award-winning archive of content and resources.

About Joe Mincozzi:

Before moving to Asheville, he was the primary administrator of the Form Based Code for downtown West Palm Beach, Florida. Joe's cross-training in city planning in the public and private sectors, as well as private sector real estate finance, has allowed him to develop award-winning analytic tools that have garnered national attention in Planetizen, The Wall Street Journal, Planning, New Urban News, Realtor, Atlantic Cities and the Center for Clean Air Policy's Growing Wealthier report. Joe is a sought-after lecturer on city planning issues. His work has been featured at the Congress for New Urbanism, the American Planning Association, the International Association of Assessing Officers, and New Partners for SmartGrowth conferences as a paradigm shift for thinking about development patterns.
