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.
