Strong Towns happen when people who care about their communities come together as strong citizens. Join us as we discuss a “Neighborhoods First” approach that shows how a community can grow stronger by making small, incremental investments over time. Together with local government, we can collaboratively build a prosperous Thomasville.
Brian Herrmann, Councilmember Don Sims, and County Commissioner Wiley Grady will discuss current city projects. Directly following this discussion, Victor Dover will give a presentation on "Great Streets." This is a joint event with the Friends of the Library.

Join us as Kevin Klinkenberg presents “A Different Paradigm for Economic Development” and
discusses his experience working in Savannah and smaller cities throughout the southeast.
