Development Director, Strong Towns
Our roads are deteriorating. Our state and local governments are in debt. No matter how much we increase them, our taxes aren’t enough to fix it all. And no one seems to be able to agree on how we got here—much less how to change course. In this presentation, Bo Wright will look at the decline of American cities and offer a way forward to create enduring prosperity. He will stress that the path will require new thinking that extends beyond numbers in a budget. Why? Because this is about the fate of the communities we love most, and the real people that live there. This is about how to give our citizens, today and tomorrow, a chance at the future they deserve.
