Speaker Series - A False Prosperity: The Hidden Cost of Suburban Sprawl

Join us Wednesday, October 26th at 9:00 am at City Hall Council Chambers with Chuck Marohn, founder of Strong Towns.

Since the late 1940s, Americans have been lured out to the suburbs with promises of wealth and increased quality of life. To many, those promises feel empty today when faced with substantial debt, rising housing costs, lengthy commutes, and little sense of community. In this talk, Chuck Marohn will discuss the relationship between mobility, household affordability, and suburban sprawl, including the pitfalls of auto-oriented development, as well as present his approach to building more connected, sustainable, and prosperous neighborhoods.
