Fall 2012 City Design and Development Forum: The New Urban Interface
Hosted by DUSP Visiting Scholar Aaron Naparstek
Strong Towns: Rising From the Ashes of Suburbia
Date: Monday, October 15, 6:00 PM
Speaker: Charles Marohn (Executive Director, StrongTowns.org)
Following World War II, the United States embarked on the great social and financial experiment of suburbanization. The development of suburbia created tremendous growth, opportunity and prosperity for a generation that had just lived through economic depression and war. But sprawling, automobile-dependent development would prove far too costly to sustain. Today, nearly every U.S. city is grappling with this harsh fiscal legacy. Charles Marohn joins DUSP Visiting Scholar Aaron Naparstek for a presentation and conversation on how America can get back to building Strong Towns.
