Charles Marohn, president of Strong Towns, a national nonprofit working to strengthen financial resilience in America’s towns and cities, will speak at 1 p.m. Wednesday (Jan. 6) at South Puget Sound Community College’s Lacey Campus, 4220 Sixth Ave. SE.
Marohn’s Curbside Chat is centered on the question, “Why, despite all the growth America has experienced, do our cities struggle financially just to accomplish basic tasks?” In the second half of the presentation, Marohn will specifically speak about issues in the Olympia area, and open the floor for discussion. Public officials are especially invited to attend.
The event is free and open to the public, but attendees are asked to register beforehand via this link.
