You've seen the need for greater housing options, affordable commercial spaces, and small-scale development in your city. But how do you actually make it happen, especially when the forces of bureaucracy and regulation seem to work against you and your neighbors?

This session will help you identify the obstacles preventing your town from moving forward with incremental development and entrepreneurship, and then make a plan to change that.

Brian Falk, director of the Project for Lean Urbanism, along with Strong Towns Senior Editor Daniel Herriges, discusses the "Pink Zones" approach to helping lower barriers for small businesses and developers who want to make their cities stronger.

The course is worth 1 continuing education credit through the AICP.
