      Keynote; Strategies for Building Strong Towns: How ordinary people can do extraordinary things. Chuck Marohn, President, Community Growth Institute

      Local officials and their concerned residents are starting to realize that, if they want to make their community a better place, the responsibility is theirs. To some this is overwhelming, but to others it is liberating to redirect energy from pursuing outside assistance to making things happen locally. There are many things that even the smallest community can do to transform themselves into a strong town.

      Charles Marohn - known as "Chuck" to friends and colleagues - is a Professional Engineer (PE) licensed in the State of Minnesota and a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP). He has a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Minnesota's  Institute of Technology and a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Minnesota's Humphrey Institute. He is the author of Thoughts on Building Strong Towns (Volume 1), the primary author of the Strong Towns Blog and the host of the Strong Towns Podcast and See it Differently TV.
