|How NOT to incremental it.|
This week, Charles Marohn is discussing incrementalism. I'm not expecting this to be a focus for the incoming redevelopment/dishevelment director, so it's our job to bone up.
I’ve found that the most difficult thing for people to grasp about Strong Towns is our insistence on an incremental approach to development. I stress how we need to be making small investments over a broad area over a long period of time. I talk about the small bets our ancestors made when building places, how their approach fit with a complex world where we lack the ability to predict, project or even fully understand, after the fact, why one place succeeds and another fails. I show how the incremental approach results in places that are resilient, adaptable and – most incredibly – financially far more successful than our modern approach.
Here are the four parts of this week's series. Happy browsing.
