A new way forward for sustainable quality of life in cities of all sizes Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Build American Prosperity is a book of forward-thinking ideas that breaks with modern wisdom to present a new vision of urban development in the United States. Presenting the foundational ideas of the Strong Towns movement he co-founded, Charles Marohn explains why cities of all sizes continue to struggle to meet their basic needs, and reveals the new paradigm that can solve this longstanding problem. Inside, you’ll learn why inducing growth and development has been the conventional response to urban financial struggles—and why it just doesn’t work. New development and high-risk investing don’t generate enough wealth to support itself, and cities continue to struggle. Read this book to find out how cities large and small can focus on bottom-up investments to minimize risk and maximize their ability to strengthen the community financially and improve citizens’ quality of life. Develop in-depth knowledge of the underlying logic behind the “traditional” search for never-ending urban growth Learn practical solutions for ameliorating financial struggles through low-risk investment and a grassroots focus Gain insights and tools that can stop the vicious cycle of budget shortfalls and unexpected downturns Become a part of the Strong Towns revolution by shifting the focus away from top-down growth toward rebuilding American prosperity Strong Towns acknowledges that there is a problem with the American approach to growth and shows community leaders a new way forward. The Strong Towns response is a revolution in how we assemble the places we live.

When the first volume of this book was published in 2011, Strong Towns was a fledgling nonprofit. Since then, it has grown into a national media organization with an award-winning website, StrongTowns.org, and accompanying podcast. Over the last five years, Strong Towns' member base has grown and its message has spread across the country. Volume II is a chance to share the top essays published on our website in 2015, reworked and compiled into compelling chapters including, "Can you be an engineer and speak out for reform?" "Dealing with Congestion," and "My Car Pays Cheaper Rent Than Me." Also included are sections on Strong Towns' ongoing campaigns, #NoNewRoads and #SlowtheCars. The book features writing from Strong Towns' president, Charles Marohn, as well as several Strong Towns contributors.

All around us, we see communities mired in debt, struggling just to patch potholes or repaint storefronts. Yet we also see our governments spending incredible sums of money on new highways, stadiums and civic centers. Why is there such a mismatch between our neighborhoods' basic needs-unfulfilled-and a seemingly endless pot of money that our local leaders can tap into to pay for unnecessary megaprojects? How can we change this model of development so that our towns build lasting prosperity from the bottom up, with people like you and me, instead of faking it from the top down?These are some of the key questions Strong Towns sets out to answer in Volume III of Thoughts on Building Strong Towns.The Mission of Strong Towns is to support a model of development that allows America's cities, towns and neighborhoods to become financially strong and resilient.
