We are a group of active Annapolis Maryland residents trying to reframe the discussion of Annapolis’ future to make it a more resilient, walkable, and prosperous city. We are part of the international Strong Towns movement.
If you are interested in hearing from us about how Strong Towns principles apply to the Annapolis area, please contact us using the form below:
Start by reading this article: https://www.strongtowns.org/journal/2019/10/9/we-need-growth-but-only-if-it-generates-real-wealth
This is perhaps the best Strong Towns article that pertains to The City Of Annapolis (and other similar places that are experiencing growth pressure). The question is not “growth” or “no growth”, but “what kind of growth”. This is the essence of how we are trying to reframe the discussion locally and why we brought Strong Towns here.
If you are not familiar with the Strong Towns content and web site, start with their page “Strong Towns Crash Course”: https://www.strongtowns.org/journal/2018/7/27/a-strong-towns-crash-course
