StrongTowns.org is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that helps America's local governments achieve financial strength and resiliency.

The American approach to growth is causing economic stagnation and decline along with land use practices that force a dependency on public subsidies.  The inefficiencies of the current approach have left American municipalities financially insolvent, unable to pay even the maintenance cost of their basic infrastructure.  A new approach that accounts for the full cost of growth is needed to make our towns strong again.
