On Wednesday, October 26th, the next Imagine Austin Speaker Series will host Chuck Marohn of Strong Towns http://www.strongtowns.org/.

Since the late 1940s, Americans have been lured out to the suburbs with promises of wealth and increased quality of life. To many, those promises feel empty today when faced with substantial debt, rising housing costs, lengthy commutes, and little sense of community. In his talk, Mr. Marohn will discuss the relationship between mobility, household affordability, and suburban sprawl, including the pitfalls of auto-oriented development as well as present his approach to building more connected, sustainable, and prosperous neighborhoods.

RSVP to the facebook event https://www.facebook.com/events/203692100051052/ or check out the Imagine Austin webpage http://austintexas.gov/event/false-pros … ban-sprawl for updates.
