Friends LMT: Presents Tom Hylton, Smart Growth Advocate and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist
Friends for Protection presents a night with Tom Hylton: A pulitzer prize-winning journalist, is author of Save Our Land, Save Our Towns. The book is a plea for comprehensive planning to save our cities, towns, and countryside.
Since publication of the book, Hylton has given 450 presentations in Pennsylvania and 34 other states on land use planning and community building.
How does a small town, a county, a state and our nation reverse suburban sprawl? This question has become the focal point of a crusade by Pennsylvania Newsman Tom Hylton, 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.
His 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.
