Description: The maintenance of streets puts a significant financial burden on cities. City personnel recognize that the available resources are inadequate to maintain the extensive networks of roads and are looking for strategies to deal with this shortfall. These strategies including creating new street maintenance taxes, shifting priorities and creating a fee structure for new neighborhood development. The aim of this session is to demonstrate examples of existing and alternative strategies to deal with this shortfall, and to have a discussion about the repercussions of these strategies.
