Incremental Growth: (or how smart growth is fiscally responsible)
by Chuck Marohn of Strong Towns.
When: Tuesday, April 24, 2018, 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.
33 Federal Road
West Grove, PA
What: S.A.V.E. is hosting Chuck Marohn of Strong Towns for an address on “Incremental Growth.” Chuck Marohn has been a powerful advocate for smart growth and walkable urbanism from a fiscally conservative point of view.
From Strong Town’s website: “The mission of Strong Towns is to support a model of development that allows America’s cities, towns and neighborhoods to become financially strong and resilient.”
A STRONG TOWNS APPROACH
There are no universal answers to the complex problems America’s cities, towns and neighborhoods face. At Strong Towns, we seek to discover rational ways to respond to these challenges. A Strong Towns approach:
- Relies on small, incremental investments (little bets) instead of large, transformative projects
- Emphasizes resiliency of result over efficiency of execution
- Is designed to adapt to feedback
- Is inspired by bottom-up action (chaotic but smart) and not top-down systems (orderly but dumb)
- Seeks to conduct as much of life as possible at a personal scale, and
- Is obsessive about accounting for its revenues, expenses, assets and long term liabilities (do the math).
