Charles Marohn/The Minnesota Series: Original Thinking from the American Midwest

source: Simon Fraser University Continuing Studies 2013年11月7日
In October 2013, SFU hosted an urban planning lecture featuring Charles Marohn. The lecture was part of a series on Minnesota, a state that shares more than a border with Canada.
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.
This lecture was sponsored by TransLink, the City of Surrey, and SFU Urban Studies.
