What makes for a "strong town"?
Renowned urban planner and engineer Chuck Marohn offers some explanations for what makes a place great — and it's not always flashy new developments. He argues that true strength comes from the kind of complex interactions that occur when people really care about a place, and which ultimately produce more in tax revenue than they cost in services. Improving places that already have strengths can sometimes lead to outsized results. Great cities are the culmination of generations of hard work, and we can lay the groundwork for great places in the future by caring for people today.
