Join us this Saturday in Miami for a special event, “Placemaking 101 Series – a Strong Towns Curbside Chat”. Strong Towns executive Director, Charles L Marohn, Jr. will share his non-profit’s work through a candid talk about the future of America’s cities, towns and neighborhoods. This is a local free event, and you are encouraged to invite your co-workers, neighbors and friends.

Strong Towns has traveled around the country delivering the Curbside Chat presentation, which is non-technical program, developed specifically for public officials, local advocates and the general public. The presentation will be followed by a community specific discussion on the issues stemming from our unhealthy growth pattern here in South Florida and what we need to do to repair our communities.

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.
