Strong Towns and Place-Based Economic Development

Creating Stronger and Resilient Towns

A year ago Cambium and Peterborough Economic Development presented a Strong Town’s Curbside Chat with Chuck Marohn. The goal was to inspire, provide insight, and hopefully spark communities to take a different approach with regard to the growth and development of our towns. With a new model of development, we can allow cities, towns and neighbourhoods to grow financially strong and resilient.

The evening commenced with a presentation by Rob Voigt, Registered Professional Planner and Senior Project Manager of Cambium’s Community Development services. As a recognized leader and expert in Place Based Economic Development and Community Planning, Rob provided an introduction and foundation to healthy community designs. The overall message of the evening was sustainable development is good planning for a healthy future!
