This might sound a bit dramatic, but it represents the worst case scenario; the most vulnerable meeting the least vulnerable. So consider all of the potential combinations…bikes, wheelchairs, slow walker, runners, bike taxis, cars, motorcycles…..you get the idea. Then go to the NE Bike Walk Poll and tell us your thoughts on speed on White Bear Lake’s Main Street
On October 29 we are partnering with the City of White Bear Lake to bring Chuck Marohn to town to speak.Chuck is the president and co-founder of Strongtowns.org. His presentation starts at 6:30 p.m. and will take place at the Police training facility behind City Hall.
Strong Towns is a non-profit organization that supports a model for growth that allows America’s towns to become financially strong and self-sufficient. Strong Towns advocates a new approach to town planning that accounts for the full cost of growth—one that is needed to make our towns strong again.
Chuck is traveling across Minnesota to deliver his Curbside Chat to communities. His presentation was created for local officials and key community leaders and has five parts:
Background on the current financial crisis.
The triggers forcing changes in the way we inhabit the landscape.
The “dead ideas” we need to overcome to renew prosperity in our towns and neighborhoods.
What the coming new economy is likely to look like.
What local leaders can do to position their communities for success in the new era.
