APA: Neighborhoods First: An Evening with Chuck Marohn

OCTOBER 30 2019

4:00 PM - 6:30 PM

LAKEWOOD CIVIC CENTER
480 Allison Parkway
Lakewood, CO 80226

 

Downtown Colorado, Inc., APA Colorado, and the City of Lakewood are proud to bring Chuck Marohn, founder and president of Strong Towns, to Lakewood the evening of October 30, 2019 to kick off the Strong America Tour! Strong Towns is a national organization dedicated to community development that celebrates resilience, incremental change, adaptation, citizen engagement, and making decisions based on current finances and neighborhood needs.

In the Strong America presentation, Strong Towns President and Founder Charles L. Marohn, Jr. highlights some of the most powerful stories in his book Strong Towns: A Bottom Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity—and uses those insights to highlight a path to community prosperity that’s as unique as your place.

Using an innovative, hands-on approach, The Strong America presentation begins by showcasing why so many towns in North America are struggling financially despite decades of robust growth, and then invites the audience to “choose their own adventure” from a range of presentation tracks and go deeper into just one area where their unique community can make a change today. Designed to be dynamic and bespoke to each town, the Strong America presentation is part community conversation, part lecture from an expert, and hopefully, the catalyst for your place to become financially stronger.
