Some Elaboration on "Let Urban be Urban"

Last week I had the opportunity to speak at the Strong Towns Summit, in Tulsa, OK. Many thanks to the Strong Towns crew for the opportunity. As always, I learned a great deal from Chuck Marohn and the whole slate of presenters.

I did get to spend an hour elaborating on my topic of "Let Urban be Urban and Let Sprawl be Sprawl." It's a concept that won't make some folks happy, but it's increasingly what I feel as the right way to navigate current times in planning and development. You can see the full presentation here, by starting at the 2:40:00 mark. As always, please leave your comments below.
