Nationally renowned urban thinker Chuck Marohn, who kicked off the Library’s Making a Great City series in January, returns to assess the crucial takeaways from all three sessions, including the advisability of an incremental, neighborhoods-first approach to development in cities such as Kansas City. By observing and asking how neighborhood residents live their lives – getting out on the street and discovering what’s going on – local governments can discern a community’s pressing needs. Risk is lowered. Returns on investment are higher.
Participants in this event will understand:
· How a neighborhoods-first approach to development practices to improve productivity and capacity at the neighborhood-level works;
· The importance of small-scale, incremental development and empowerment of community members to develop property in their own neighborhood;
· Examples of how local governments have approached these ideas and enabled small-scale development ; and
· The need for fiscally-responsible cities.
