Co-sponsored by USGBC-ET and presented by the Plan East Tennessee (PlanET) Consortium, the free April 30 Curbside Chat program, “New Strategies for the Economic Realities Facing America’s Towns” covers the causes and impacts of the current economic crisis, examines case studies on the finances of America’s development pattern, reviews “dead ideas” of the suburban era we need to shed and proposes strategies for adjusting to the new realities we face.
Topics covered include:
- 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?
- How do we address our problems in a dramatically different economy?
Led by Chuck Marohn from Strong Towns.
