The Minnesota Series: Original Thinking from the American Midwest

September 19, 2016 at 10:49 am Leave a comment

In October 2013, SFU hosted an urban planning lecture featuring Charles Marohn.

Marohn is the co-founder and president of Strong Towns, and a professional engineer who is passionate about planning and small towns. He brings a civil-engineering perspective that results in original ideas such as the “stroad,” a street/road hybrid that manages to be both expensive and unproductive. He’s a fiscal conservative who makes his case effectively to a small-government audience as much as to urban planners and engineers.
