Join us Tuesday, March 23rd at 6:30pm to hear from Charles “Chuck” Marohn, Founder and President of Strong Towns. With a bachelor’s degree in Engineering and a master’s in urban and Regional Planning from the University of Minnesota, Marohn started out working as an engineer until he noticed the answer to “why are we doing this” was always “because that’s how we do things”.
Marohn’s program will highlight the grassroots efforts that can be used to rebuild fiscal resilience in our communities. He will explain how cities large and small can focus on bottom-up investments to minimize risk and maximize their ability to strengthen the community financially and improve citizens’ quality of life.
Marohn is the Founder and President of Strong Towns and the author of Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity. He is a Professional Engineer (PE) licensed in the State of Minnesota and a land use planner with two decades of experience. He has presented Strong Towns concepts in hundreds of cities and towns across North America was named one of the 10 Most Influential Urbanists of all time by Planetizen.
This program is FREE and open to all. Residents of Mobile and Baldwin counties are encouraged to attend. The program will stream live on Zoom and Facebook on Tuesday, March 23rd at 6:30pm. Mr. Marohn’s presentation will be followed by a live question & answer.
