Why are our cities and towns so short of resources despite decades of robust growth? Why do we struggle at the local level just to maintain our basic infrastructure? How do we address our problems in a dramatically different economy?

Mr. Marohn will address how local governments have failed to consider the long-term returns on public investments, adopting a pattern of development that creates massive maintenance costs.

Join us to learn more about:
  • Increasing your town’s financial resiliency
  • Maximizing the return on your community’s investments
  • Building places worthy of admiration
