Boerne – Strong Towns 2018 Community Event

November 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Fees/Admission: $35 Chamber Members or $40 Non-Chamber Members     Contact: Holly Rodriguez     Email: holly@boerne.org

Join us for Strong Towns Boerne 2018. This engaging community event will include a presentation from Strong Towns President Chuck Marohn entitled “Neighborhoods First.”

Risky, low returning projects too often become expensive boondoggles that haunt a community for decades. Public officials everywhere are desperately seeking an alternative. This talk will cover the “Neighborhoods First” approach to show how a community can grow stronger by making small, incremental investments over time. By observing how neighbors live their lives, by asking them where their daily struggles are, by getting out on the street and discovering what is actually going on, any local government can discern what their community’s pressing needs are. These projects are the high return investments and they are all around us.

A portfolio of incremental projects, each building on observed needs and past successes, is the basis of a solid, long term investment strategy for communities of any size. It is an approach that fits into every budget. It will empower a local government to move beyond the lack of ownership and control that comes with traditional grant programs. And most importantly, you can get started right now.

Light appetizers and beverages will be served by Peggy’s on the Green.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available! Contact Kim at kim@boerne.org for more info.
