In the 2016 presidential campaign, both frontrunner candidates claimed they wanted to increase infrastructure spending in America. Since the election, that sentiment has continued across the country. Strong Towns has a very different perspective. In a nation that has spent more than seven decades frantically spreading out, there are trillions of dollars of unproductive infrastructure already in the ground today waiting for us to make better use of. Strong Towns sees that our cities, towns and neighborhoods are dripping with opportunity. These opportunities are not of the mega-project variety. They are small, but they can positively transform everything about how we live our lives.
