Pick almost any issue you’re trying to address in your community—road safety, missing middle housing, parking reform—and the Strong Towns National Gathering will provide you tools, knowledge, and support to accomplish your goal. We’ve finalized the calendar for the event (May 30–31 in Charlotte, North Carolina), and it’s not too late to get your ticket and join us there.
Sessions will be led by Strong Towns staff (including Strong Towns 101 with Chuck Marohn) and leading experts in the many fields that make up the Strong Towns movement. You’ll hear from M. Nolan Gray about how zoning has held your city back; Tony Jordan and Jane Wilberding about the many benefits of removing parking requirements; plus panel discussions on fighting highway expansion, helping incremental developers succeed, and running for elected office. You’ll find a complete agenda with detailed session descriptions here.
Strong Towns members who want to get more deeply involved in their communities can attend sessions with Edward Erfurt about our innovative new Crash Analysis Studio, and learn how to find or start a Local Conversation with John Pattison. We’re also looking forward to presenting the award for the 2023 Strongest Town to a delegation from Brattleboro, Vermont.
Best of all, you’ll be in the room with other passionate citizen-advocates who can share experiences and provide support for your mission to improve your community. This year’s Gathering precedes the Congress for the New Urbanism, and attendees can also join the CNU opening party on May 31. Now climb off the fence and get your tickets now!
