“Strong Towns” organization to visit Mount Pleasant

downloadA non profit organization that aims to make cities and towns stronger is coming to Mt Pleasant this week.

The group called Strong Towns says it works to strengthen financial resilience in communities it visits. Next on the list is Mount Pleasant.

Charles Marohn is the President and founder of Strong Towns.

“We’re going to be having conversations throughout the day, both public and then also with some smaller groups with elected officials and other people who are working on change in the community, talking about some of our insights and how they can be applied to Mount Pleasant.”

Marohn says he has visited hundreds of cities and towns across the country. He’s planning to be in Mt Pleasant on Thursday
