Friends LMT presents: An evening with Tom Hylton, pulitzter prize winning journalist
How does a small town... a county... a state... or a nation reverse negative impact of sprawl and urban decay? How are these concerns related? This question became the focal point of a crusade by Pennsylvania newsman Tom Hylton in the mid 1980s, as he watched his lovely small town decline while the surrounding countryside was paved over for a jumble of roads, stores, parking lots, and tract housing. This crusade led to a Pulitzer Prize, a year-long planning fellowship, an influential book, a public television documentary, and finally, to the charitable corporation Save Our Land, Save Our Towns, Inc.
Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Tom Hylton author of Save our land, Save our towns a call to action on land use and growth issues facing Pennsylvania will speak locally on Nov. 26th. The location will be the Macungie Institute at 7pm.
