Urban Decay Likely Before Reinvention (Charles Marohn Jr.)
Cities across the nation are struggling to reinvent themselves as they see scarcer resources and higher costs associated with suburban sprawl. The McLean County Chamber of Commerce is bringing in an expert on that process tomorrow at the Marriot in Normal. WGLTís Charlie Schlenker has a conversation about what makes strong towns and how suburban decay will come before city renewal.

   
Chuck Marohn Junior speaks at the Marriot Hotel tomorrow morning for the McLean County Chamber of Commerce about neighborhood redevelopment planning and financing. The breakfast and speech begins at 7 a.m.

Listen to Marohn talk about the complementary influence of New Urbanism on his thinking.

   
Marohn says the western U.S. is in a much worse pickle than the Midwest in addressing redevelopment issues.
