A Special Tuesday Talk with Mashpee Commons by Design

Creating a Stable Economic Base for Mashpee

Please join us for a special Tuesday Talk as part of the Mashpee Commons by Design series on March 27th at 6:00 PM at the Mashpee Public Library.

Tuesday Talk #3: Creating a Stable Economic Base for Mashpee will explore why so many American towns find themselves in decline and chasing a stable tax base, despite decades of “growth.” The problem lies in the current model of development and decisions that value short-term gains over long-term prosperity. Join national thought-leaders, Chuck Marohn and Joe Minicozzi, for a presentation that will expose the flawed math used to assess the financial impacts of development. Learn how local officials, design professionals, and citizens can change the negative financial trajectory in their towns and help them to become more financially resilient — no matter what challenges lie ahead.
