An event for Sac Valley Section APA members and the Sacramento area community!
Strong Towns is a nonprofit advocating for a new way to think about how our cities are built. The movement’s founder and author of Strong Town series, Charles Marohn, joins us in Sacramento on June 16 to discuss key ideas in his new book, Confessions of a Recovering Engineer, and Strong Towns’ vision for financially resilient transportation systems.
You won’t want to miss this! Learn how the values of engineers and other transportation professionals are applied in the design process, and how those priorities differ from the values of the general public. Marohn will reveal how the standard approach to issues like fighting congestion, addressing speeding, and designing intersections only makes transportation problems worse, at great cost in terms of both safety and resources.
